McKinney requires hot work permits as the county burn ban goes into effect

Collin County is now under a 90-day burn ban

 McKINNEY, Texas (July 13, 2022) – The McKinney Fire Department (MFD) is endorsing Collin County’s outdoor burn ban within the incorporated limits of the City of McKinney. As a result, MFD requires hot work permits for those performing hot work or cutting and welding outdoors.

 “The free permits reinforce the importance of heightened awareness for safety during these hot and dry conditions,” said McKinney Fire Marshal Mike Smith.
