Message from the Easton Fire Marshal
Until the State of Connecticut’s COVID 19 Precautions are lifted, The Open Burning Program is suspended in the Town of Easton. Applications permit pick-ups and permission to burn will not be issued and or approved by the Fire Marshal. This decision was made to decrease potential exposure to first responders and the community for the time being. As always I will update the community when the program becomes reinstated. In the meantime stay safe and positive during this time.
