Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Fire Department speak at our school or local meeting?
Yes. The Fire Department frequently visits local schools, churches, and service clubs to talk about and teach fire safety.

Can I have a campfire in the backyard?
Yes, under certain conditions. This would be considered a recreational fire and is allowed provided the fire is no larger than 2 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height. The fire must be at least 15 feet from any combustible building. It must be supervised and should only burn clean, dry wood. It must be only for the preparation of food. For ceremonial fires, such as you see at the high school or a festival, special permits may be obtained through this office. These are given under strict guidelines.

Will you inspect my business?
Yes. If you wish to have your building inspected for any reason, contact this office. There is no charge for the inspection.

What if I have a violation?
When businesses are inspected, a copy of the inspection form is left with the owner/manager explaining what safety hazards were found. A time period of ten working days is usually given to correct the problem.

Who do I call?
Any questions you have regarding fire safety, open burning, public speaking, or any other problem may be directed to the Fire Marshal's office at 989-354-1841.
