Open burning of yard debris on Hilton Head Island poses many risks.
The smoke is filled with dangerous particulates. Carbon monoxide from fires is even worse when the leaves and branches are wet. Open burning affects people with allergies, asthma and lung disease. What if a fire got out of control? Families, homes and businesses would be impacted.

Many voices will get the attention of our mayor and Town Council. We must stop open burning on Hilton Head now.
