NEWS & EVENTS
Spring is coming!
Open Burn will be from April 15,2021 to May 15, 2021
Due to questions raised and to clear up some confusion on previous burn bans due to COVID 19, here is a quick brief on fires and burning within our city limits.
*City Ordinance does not allow for an open fire in the city limits without a burn permit except during OPEN BURN.
*An enclosed fire pit or burn barrel is allowed for roasting marshmallows, burning paper, or small pieces of wood (natural items).
*Safety measures are necessary anytime a fire is created or burning. Please follow the below:
-Fire must be attended all the time it is burning.
-A source of water is available.
-The fire must be completely out upon leaving.
-If trouble is encountered, the fire department (911) must be called.
-No burning of animals, plastic articles, petroleum products, pathogenic products, tires or rubber products or hazardous wastes will be allowed.
If there is a County wide ban due to health concerns or air quality, the City of Parma falls under that same ban. If you have questions on air quality and burning, contact Department of Environmental Air Quality (208-373-0313).
Please help us keep our community clean and safe!
WHAT IS REVERSE 911
It is a public alert system most frequently used by safety organizations to alert individuals and businesses of an emergency or risk of danger by sending a recorded voice message to landline telephones and registered cellphones within a defined geographical area.
If you receive a message, it will notify you of an event that is occurring in your geographic area asking for assistance, advising a warning, or letting you know of action to be taken.
