Please read below inforamtion regarding "Burn Bans". Thank you!

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OPEN BURNING IN THE TOWNSHIP
Spring is brush fire season in our region. Area fields are full of dry crop residue, wooded areas are covered in dry leaves and yards haven’t turned green yet. The mixture of low humidity, high winds and plenty of available items on the ground to burn can make for a very dangerous situation. The Township monitors weather conditions daily and may place a temporary restriction on burning until conditions improve. Please be aware that while Spring is historically the most common time of year for burn bans, they can be enacted at any time as a result of drought or other weather related events.

Burn bans are enacted every time a Fire Danger Weather Related Warning is issued for our area by the National Weather Service. These notices include the following:

-Fire Weather Watch
-Enhanced Threats for Fire Spread
-Red Flag Warnings
Burn bans apply to all open fires! For more information regarding regulations for burning including acceptable items to burn, hours of burning, setbacks, etc. please review the Township’s Burn Ordinance.
Ways that you can find out if a burn ban is in effect:

-Contact the Lehigh County 911 Center, Non-emergency # 610-437-5252
(Note: Per Twp. Ord. All open burns must be reported to the County 911 Center via this #)
-Contact the Township office at 610-285-6660 during normal business hours

-Sign-up for weather alerts from the National Weather Service. If an alert is issued related to fire weather in our Township then open burning is prohibited during the times specified in the alert.
