Welcome to the
Fire Season is Here: Know how to burn safely!
A springtime reminder, grass and leaves that were on the ground over the winter are very dry and can ignite easily from a spark or an ember.
If you intend to burn yard debris, make sure that weather conditions are favorable. Go to Michigan.gov/BurnPermit to see if burn permits are being issued in your area.
PURSUANT TO THE WATERSMEET OUTDOOR FIRE REGULATION ORDINANCE - FINES WILL BE IMPOSED FOR ILLEGAL OPEN BURNING
Offenders will also be required to reimburse the township(s) for all costs associated with an emergency response.
Fire Number Sign Replacement Program
Watersmeet Township is launching a voluntary fire number sign replacement program. Unlike the existing signs, the new signs are large, durable, easy to see and reflective which will enable emergency personnel to locate property addresses easily, even at night. The new signs will have “Watersmeet Twp”, and the address number. The new signs are 20”x 9” two-sided blue flags, which allow them to be seen from either direction on the roadway, they will fit on the existing standard poles. The cost for each sign is $27.00.
