Burn Permits

Burn permits may be issued to  Brattleboro town residents who wish to have a fire on their property. Fires must be out by dark and may not contain anything other than natural wood. In dry conditions, the town reserves the right to deny permits. If the fire gets out of control the permit holder has a responsibility to call 911 so firefighters can put it out before it endangers structures or wildlands.

 

Extinguisher Training

The fire department offers live fire extinguisher training to businesses and small groups. These are offered Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. To set up a training please call the station during those times at (802) 254-4831.
