With open burning season beginning on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, the GTFD burning permit system is now live. You can now purchase your permits online. Cost for a seasonal permit is $10. There is a convenience fee for using a credit/debit card or if using a check online. You can also get a permit by coming to the Central Fire Station during business hours. (We recommend getting your permit online as our staff may not be available if they are out during emergencies)
To get your permit online, please visit: https://massfire.net/brush/georgetown.php and follow the instructions.
Each day you wish to burn, you will need to call our automated system at 1-855-956-2722 to register your intent to burn.
PLEASE NOTE: The phone number you call from each day you wish to burn must be registered in your account. When entering your phone number when you create your account, you should input the number you expect to call from. You can add additional phone numbers (ie., house phone, another mobile phone, etc.) if you expect to call from different numbers by going into your account at (gtfd.burnpermits.com), click on “My Profile” in the upper right corner and look for the phone number section and add the additional numbers.
We appreciate your patience as we work through our new system.
