The Oklahoma Forestry Service provided this information for the ban. The information from the link provides guidelines and exemptions for the burn ban relating to activities that might cause ignition.
Some of the activities addressed include:
Hopefully with the weather that is moving in during this next week, we will be closer to the end of the burn ban.
