fire fightersThe 45 members of the Prior Lake Volunteer Fire Department provide emergency disaster management and planning, fire suppression, rescue, prevention, code enforcement and public education under the leadership of full time Fire Chief Doug Hartman.

VOLUNTEERS
Prior Lake doesn’t have full-time firefighters who serve on a paid, on-call basis, which means they are paid only for the time they put in. All held regular jobs and are paid at a nominal rate of $11.85 for fires and training. Only Chief Hartman is a full-time paid member of the department.

BURNING PERMITS
The Minnesota State Fire Code (MSFC) identifies a recreational fire as 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height. Any fire larger than this is regulated by permit.

Treated lumber materials, construction debris, garbage, plastics, furniture or other waste materials are not allowed to be burned in recreational fires. They must be at least 25 feet from all buildings or combustible materials and  must be attended at all times. You also must have an approved fire extinguisher on site.

You can access the MSFC through the State Fire Marshalls web site at www.fire.state.mn.us to see all the regulations relating to recreational fires.
