Please understand, this project is weather sensitive, and safety is the priority. The Frederick-Firestone Fire District and Frederick Public Works will use a spot weather service through the National Weather Service on Tuesday, November 16, and Wednesday, November 17 to finalize plans. A joint briefing between all parties will make the final "go or no go" decision on the day of scheduled burns. Decisions will be based on the weather forecasts and the smoke dispersion parameters.
Updates, possible detours, and burn areas are available here.
