If you are planning a controlled burn at your residence, property or place of business you should first call the dispatch center. The phone number to report controlled burns is 315-536-3033. By notifying the dispatch center of you plan to burn material, it lessens the chances of an unnecessary Fire Department response to your location. In the event your burn becomes out of control call 911 immediately to request the Fire Department.
Note: Open burning is not allowed within the Villages of Penn Yan, Dundee, or Dresden. Large or unique burns may also be subject to Encon or fire department approval.
