Grass Fire Safety

Grass fires present a needless hazard to all concerned.  Think Twice before setting a grass fire.  They can become uncontrollable very quickly.   Here are the top three things every homeowner should know:

  • Grass burning does not help the environment as it further pollutes the air and damages vital natural nutrients in the top soil.

  • Grass fires, when they get out of control, endangers  your property, your neighbors, and last but not least, puts the lives of our fire fighters at risk needlessly.

  • If you set a grass fire which destroys property of others, you can be held liable.
