Effective immediately until further notice, there is a burn ban in the town of Wallingford, to include South and East Wallingford.I am implementing this burn ban due to a number of reasons related to the Covid-19 virus.- I do not want myself or the Deputy Warden in East Wallingford unnecessarily meeting with landowners.
– If a burn goes uncontrolled it would require a response from the local fire department and/or mutual aid companies which would put a group if firefighters together that do not need to be.
– A burn that goes uncontrolled would take away town resources that may be needed during this pandemic.Over all I am asking for your cooperation in refraining from ANY open burning during this time, even in designated fire pits. If you do have an outside fire you will be asked to extinguish the fire completely yourself. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.Thank you for your understanding,
Mark Barone
Fire Warden
