Aurora Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.
Mar 16, 2020

The Aurora Volunteer Fire Department desperately needs new members who would like to make our communities better and safer places to live. We need drivers and helpers as well as fire fighters and trained emergency medical personnel. Often we cannot get trucks we need to a scene because we don't have trained drivers. We need people to help with running the business, like someone to do accounting and other tasks. Often all we do is direct traffic (an important function when you've had an accident and tractor trailers are coming at you at 60 mph). Please, we can use any type of help. Contact Chief Palman at 207-944-1131 to find out more.

The Aurora Volunteer Fire Department is an all Volunteer Department that serves the towns of Amherst, Aurora, Great Pond and T28 and T22. We also provide mutual aid to many of the surrounding towns and areas.

Subject: Maine Forest Service lifts brush burning restrictions

Due to increased rainfall, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry's Maine Forest Service (MFS), aligned with local fire departments and town forest fire wardens, today lifted the statewide brush burning restriction.

The online brush and debris burning permit restriction recently went into effect due to extreme fire danger, with the initial notification stating it would remain in effect until the state sees adequate levels of precipitation.

Though lifted, depending on precipitation levels in the coming weeks, the brush and debris fire permit restriction may be restarted.

Please also note the fireworks safety recommendations recently issued by the Office of State Fire Marshal and the MFS.

Thank you,
Bill Hamilton
