Justin Carle is Assistant Forest Fire Warden.

 

The requirements to obtain a burn permit is as follows: you need to obtain a burn permit by calling the forest fire warden within 12 hours of burning grass or brush. The only time that you are not required to get a burn permit is when there is significant amount of snow in the area in which you are burning. This also depends on the time of year such as early fall and late spring when we may have early snow storms. It is always best to contact the fire warden with any questions or doubts in burning.   When there is a ban on burning it will be announced on WYKR and on the Groton website.

 

I must also remind people that in order to burn wood piles such as debris from buildings, other than brush, you must obtain a different permit from the Environmental Air Pollution Office. I do have the number for that if there any questions in that.

 

If there are any more questions, please call or email me.
