Daily Fire Conditions & Classifications

Maine Forest Service issues a ‘Classification’ for each day to indicate the safety of open burning.  They are listed as follows:

Class 1 – Low fire danger – permits can be issued.

Class 2 – Moderate fire danger –    ”

Class 3 – High fire danger – dry and easily flammable.  Check with your issuing agent(s) for your town.

Class 4 – Very high fire danger – fire danger is too high to allow open burning….no permits will be issued.

Class 5 – RED FLAG….Absolutely no open burning will be allowed until further notice.

Please be very aware of the dangers.  If you are not sure, please take the time to call one of the issuing agents for your town.  Here in Dresden those who are able to issue permits are the following:

Chief – Steve Lilly – 737-9434

Assist. Chief – Ron Theriault – 737-8771

F.F./EMA – Sonia Lilly – 737-9429

Deputy – Shari Lilly – 737-2566

Permits may be obtained online at http://www.wardensreport.com.  You MUST have a printer to make a copy of the permit and have it with you while you are burning.  This is a free service.

LET’S ALL BE SAFE AND USE COMMON SENSE AND GOOD PRACTICES WHEN IT COMES TO BURNING OF DEBRIS, ETC.
