Any open or exposed flame such as bonfires, candles, grills, etc. hereto known as open burns on state property require approval at the JMU Vice President level or higher. This burn policy does not apply to the “built-in” grills at URec, Chandler Courtyard or Village volleyball/basketball area.
Scheduled start times for open burns must be observed or the event will be canceled; with a maximum variation of one hour for inclement weather being the only exception.
Failure to follow these requirements or follow proper safety precautions may result in cancelation of the event. The State Fire Marshal’s office reserves the right to cancel any open burn without notice.
Please contact the JMU Safety Office, Tony Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org, USB 102, (540)568-6765 at least thirty days prior to the event. You will also need to complete the Open Burn Requirements Form.
