From the Milton-Milton Township Fire Department:
In order to protect the health and safety of the citizens of Wisconsin, the Milton-Milton Township Fire Department is issuing a burn ban for their entire response area. The ban will remain in place until it is rescinded.
Therefore, all burning debris in barrels, piles on the ground and grass or wooded areas is prohibited at this time.
Eliminating ignition sources on the landscape reduces wildfire risk, smoke for vulnerable populations and person-to-person contact. Emergency responders and firefighters have an increased need to take pandemic precautions so they remain available to continue to protect the public from wildfires and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
