Burn Ban Lifted in Greenfield Township


The Board of Supervisors lifted the burn ban in effect in Greenfield Township at the April 7 meeting.

The supervisors urge residents to take extra precautions when burning. Please follow these precautions:

• Only burn on non-windy days and when ground cover is not dry.

• Have a water source available.

• Call 9-1-1’s Controlled Burn number at (814) 940-5950 before you burn brush and when done burning. This is important if someone calls in a fire but it is someone burning brush.

• Burn in a contained area that must be to DEP’s standards, such as a metal barrel or cement ring with a screen on top to keep burning embers from flying out.

Do not leave the fire unattended. Have a source of water and a rake available in case the fire spreads.

• If the fire does spread, immediately call 9-1-1. The sooner the fire department is notified, the faster the fire will be appropriately extinguished and damage kept to a minimum.

• Burn only permitted materials. You cannot burn structures; they must be removed and hauled away.
