The Somers Fire Department would like to remind all residents to enforce the policy of SAFETY FIRST while considering burning autumn yard waste.

As an alternative to burning, residents may dispose of their organic yard debris at our yard waste area located behind the salt barn at the Village/Town Hall.  Click here for yard waste rules.  Please take a few minutes to review the following burn safety tips.

  1. This is a reminder that October 15th through November 30th, burning of yard waste is allowed without a permit, but only during daylight hours, and the burn area must not be larger than 4′ x 4′ x 4′.
  2. Please take a few minutes to review the Somers Ordinance 5.115 “Outdoor Burning”.
  3. Burn Permits may be purchased in person at the Village/Town Hall during regular business hours.  Click here to view our fillable Burn Permit form on
  4. Failure to follow the Ordinance may result in the revocation of your permit, and/or a citation, and you may be billed for a Somers Fire & Rescue response.
