The annual season for homeowners to burn brush as allowed by state regulations is January 15th through May 1st. Homeowners must receive a permit (no fee) from the fire department which requires an initial inspection of the site. Once a permit is issued it can be used through May 1st by renewing it over the telephone. We are encouraging homeowners to get their permit early - don't wait until the day you plan to burn brush. To request a permit call the fire department business office at 413-259-3082.
