Please take a moment to read any important safety notices from the
National Weather Service to the right.
CONTROLLED BURNS ARE NOT ALLOWED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES DURING A RED FLAG WARNING! THIS INCLUDES GARBAGE FIRES, BURN PERMITS AND BON FIRES.
You will soon be able to apply for and receive a burn permit issued through the Department.
There is no set start date, as of yet, while we wait for the paperwork to be processed.
NOTIFICATION AND REQUIREMENTS WILL BE POSTED IN AREA NEWSPAPERS, THE SAINT DAVID POST OFFICE AND THE TIGER DEN CAFE PRIOR TO THE START OF OUR ISSUING PERMITS.
REGARDLESS of what the Department of Environmental Quality states, they
are still supposed to issue you a permit until further notice.
The St. David Fire Department is made up of a special breed of men and women; individuals who understand the true meaning of service to their community. These fine people volunteer their time, and often their money, to help keep their friends and neighbours safe. Without a second thought they place their lives in danger at a moment's notice to come to the aid of someone in need.
Serving 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, these fine individuals will leave their families in the middle of the night to head into dangers unknown. Some types of calls they respond to include structure fires, wildland fires, vehicle fires, automobile accidents, all types of rescues, snake removal, and medical calls ranging from broken bones to cardiac arrests.
Many have taken their personal time to obtain EMT, Paramedic, Wildland 1 & 2, Fire Fighter 1 & 2 and different types of Instructor certifications. Some of these require up to a year of training to obtain. Once again, they do all of this for no compensation!
Our community is blessed to have such dedicated, brave and willing citizens protecting us!
