*****************************************************************************

Pelham Firefighter Chris Kain and Brian Huyler completed the Hampshire County Basic Six Firefighter Training on April 8th. This is a training course conducted each Sunday for six weeks. Local firefighters from all over Hampshire County volunteer their time to learn the basics of fire-ground operation. This class focuses on a wide variety of topics such as: proper use of the SCBA Air Packs, Ladders, Search and Rescue, Hose Operation and Fire Suppression. Congratulations and thank you both for your dedication.

Open Air Burning

January 15th – May 1st

Class 4

Alerts: Open Burning Permitted on Friday, Saturday and Sunday Only.

– See Open Burning For Rules & Regulations. –

 

You can help prevent wildland fires by burning early in the season. Wet and snowy winter conditions help hinder the rapid spread of fire on or under the ground.

Changing weather conditions and increased fire danger in spring can lead to many days when open burning is not allowed.

April is usually the worst month for brush fires. When snow recedes, but before new growth emerges, last year’s dead grass, leaves and wood are dangerous tinder. Winds also tend to be strong and unpredictable in April.

Reminder: Open Air Burning Season in Pelham ends on Sunday April 29th.
