The position of Forest Fire Warden is presently vacant.
Until we have a replacement appointed by the NH Division of Forest and Lands please call the Town Office at 603-446-3326 on Monday, Wednesday or Friday for a permit. We will provide for a contact to one of our Deputy Wardens. You may also get permit information online at: http://www.nhdfl.org/fire-control-and-law-enforcement/permits.aspx
The Forest Fire Wardens handle all matters dealing with forest fire danger in Stoddard. Burn Permits are required by law for any type of outdoor fire. The only fires that do not require a burn permit are gas and charcoal grills, and wood-type stoves that are fully enclosed with a stack and a spark arrestor. Rubbish and trash can not be burned. It can only be disposed of at the Stoddard Transfer Station.
These burn permits may be obtained from one of the forest fire wardens.
Please plan in advance to obtain your burn permit. The fire wardens may not be available on the same day that you wish to burn your brush or kindling.
