The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is using Apple-TV Plus star Ted Lasso to remind New Yorkers the brush-burning ban is still in effect.

The Annual New York State Residential Brush Burning Ban runs through May 14.

"Listen to coach. Don't set the state on fire," the DEC states.

"This winter was warmer and drier than most, but regardless of the winter weather, we are always at a greater risk of wildfires in the spring," DEC Commissioner Seggos said. " This ban helps protect our communities, natural resources, and the Rangers and other firefighters who extinguish the fires. We're encouraging all New Yorkers to think about safety first, before starting a potentially dangerous fire."

"Even though some areas of the state remain blanketed in snow, warming temps can quickly lead to wildfire conditions. When temps warm and the past fall's debris and leaves dry out, wildfires can start and spread easily, further fueled by winds and a lack of green vegetation," the DEC said.

Open burning of debris is the biggest cause of wildfires in New York State during the spring, according to the DEC.
