Field/Ditch Burning

Please contact the AFD if you plan this type of burn so that we are aware of it

Considerations when burning fields or ditches:

  • Wind speed/direction.

  • Several small burns are safer than one large burn.

  • Direction of fire spread.

  • Access/ roads.

  • Material to be burned.

  • Buildings in area of burn.

  • Utilities in area of burn ( power poles, propane tanks).

  • Firefighting tools on hand including water supply.

Please call 911 if your burn gets out of control
