Please use caution when attempting to conduct a recreational burn in your fire pit or when attempting get rid of tree limbs and brush accumulated over the winter. This winter was very hard on bringing down extra tree limbs and the amount of snow we were given created more dead grasses. This combination has created extra concern for the fire department. Please use extreme caution and common sense when burning in your fire pits. Follow the instruction given on the back of the permits you were issued. If you are attempting to burn larger piles of brush, use caution for the wind conditions, the dryness of the area around your burn site and have a hose and phone with you in attendance in the event the fire gets away from you. If this happens please call 911 immediately, time is of the essence.

If you have any questions please call my cell phone for help or suggestions at 810-523-6075. Thank you in advance for your help in keeping the community, your house and especially you a little safer while burning any approved materials at your home.
