Staying Informed

As part of the Open Burning Weather Awareness Campaign from the National Weather Service in Burlington, we will examine ways to stay informed before starting any open burning.

Anyone with plans to do open burning should be aware that we are now heading into the peak fire season for Vermont and New York. And it is the pre-greenup time of year when dead and dormant fuels cover the ground and easily burn when weather conditions dry these materials. Follow instructions from town or county forest fire wardens regarding open burning, and pay attention to weather and fuel conditions that describe Fire Danger as these elements can change quickly this time of year. Monitor fire weather products from the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont which are specifically designed to keep you informed of weather conditions that could lead to the development of large and/or dangerous wildfires.
