Wardens Fire Prevention Tips:

       When dumping your fireplace/ woodstove/ pellet stove ashes,etc., please do not dump them untill they have been wet down and the water has been mixed in thoroughly. It is also a good idea to dump them in an outdoor fire pit built to contain a fire. That way in the event that the embers re-ignite the fire will already be contained. PLEASE do not just take these ashes and throw them
in the woods!

       If you have to burn leaves left over from the fall, please do so on a day that is not ideal for fire, IE: 20% Humidity with 20MPH wind speeds and 50deg F is the ideal temp for a wildfire. Pick a day with higher humidity, lower wind speeds, and possibly lower air temp to burn your brush and leaves. Also before burning call into your 911 center and notify them that you would like to have a controlled burn and ask about any burn bans or other restrictions in your area.
Here are some other recommended training courses you can take online.
