How do I apply to become a volunteer firefighter?
If you are interested in joining a local department, please drop off your resume at the township office at 636 St. Lawrence Street, Winchester.
Do I need a burn permit?
The only outdoor fires that do not require a burn permit are those for the purpose of cooking food on a grill or barbecue or those that are small, confined and supervised at all times. All other open air fires require a permit. A backyard bonfire might or might not require a permit based on its size and containment.

Requests for fire compliance and outstanding work orders?
A Fire Department Compliance Letter is based on a site inspection of the property by the Fire Chief, or designate, to ascertain compliance with Fire Code Requirements. The Fire Chief will also confirm if there are any outstanding fire-related work orders in the property file.
