How do I get a burn permit?

Burn permits can be obtained either by getting an online permit from Maine Forest Serivce at www.maineburnpermit.com  or by stopping in person at the Falmouth Police Station at 2 Marshall Drive in Falmouth after 9 am.

Burn permits are not given when conditions are not favorable for outside burning and any permit holder must be present at all times and follow the guidelines printed on the permit.

The predicted class day from the Maine Forest service can be found here.
