Andy Herbert, Forest Fire Warden, 802-522-0544
Before burning in your yard, please contact the Forest Fire Warden to obtain a free burn permit. Why? Because your neighbors might think your house is on fire and call the Fire Department. The Fire Warden can also tell you when it is unsafe to burn (for example, in the spring when the ground is wet and the foliage has yet to come out of slumber). The Fire Forest Warden can also help give you advice on how to keep your burn pile safe.
Many thanks to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation for the following information:
