[ARCHIVED] **High Fire Danger Information**

Recently Narragansett and surrounding communities have been experiencing "High Fire Danger" warnings and "Red Flag Warnings" issued by the National Weather Service.

This means that all outdoor burning will be Strictly Prohibited until conditions improve. Typically this will occur after a significant and accumulating rainfall has occurred.

During times of "High Fire Danger" the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management reminds individuals to be constantly aware that any outdoor fire is a potential source for a wildfire. Charcoal cooking fires must be cold before being discarded. Smokers should use ash trays. Dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles should be in good running condition with mufflers to minimize sparks. Always check with Narragansett Fire Department to obtain a permit to burn.
