*Burning permits are required for all burning and can be obtained on an annual (January-December) basis free of charge at the fire department. Please call for more information.

The burning of leaves and building materials is prohibited.

We are no longer sounding the fire siren at the township hall for emergencies. If you hear the fire siren from the township hall, it means that severe weather is in our area and you should tune to your local radio station and take the appropriate action. This system will also be tested on the first Monday of the month at 1PM.
