Remember: Burn barrels are illegal in the State of Colorado, the following is information from the CO Dept. of Public Health & Environment:

Why Can’t I burn in a burn barrel?

  • It’s the law–Burn barrels are defined as incinerators using the definition given in the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) Common Provisions Regulation.  Incinerators require Construction Permits and are subject to federal and state testing requirements and regulations.  Incinerators are required by the EPA to have pollution control systems that reduce emissions.
  • Burn barrels do not combust efficiently, resulting in limited oxygen and lower temperatures that create smoke, odors and a variety of toxic pollutants like dioxins.  Dioxins are known carcinogens and can increase the risk of both short-term and long-term health problems.  Burn barrels not only impact your own health, but the health of your neighbors and the environment.  The smoke created by burn barrels also creates a nuisance.

Kitchen Hood Replacement Program a Success!!

Over the last decade, our local restaurants were faced with the financial burden of updating their kitchen fire suppression systems to meet changing fire safety standards. East Grand Fire wanted to help lessen this costly expense for our local restaurants so thus created the Commercial Kitchen Safety Incentive Program. This provided up to a $500.00 grant to help the with required replacement of antiquated kitchen hood fire suppression systems in the East Grand Fire Protection District.

We are pleased to say that, to date, East Grand Fire was able to help 11 establishments with the required upgrade to their hood systems. The project is now being completed and East Grand Fire is very happy to have been able to be a part of this important life safety and property preservation enhancing project for our community.
