Whether you live in a house, apartment or mobile home, make an escape plan. Include all doors, windows, hallways and stairways. Indicate two exits form every room. Alternate exits are needed in case primary exits are blocked by smoke or fire. Select a safe meeting place outside your home and mark it on the plan.
How to Get a Burn Permit
For information on obtaining a burn permit, please visit the North Carolina Division of Forest Resources web site, or visit the District 11 Office, which is located on the East side of NC Hwy. 86, about 1 mile South of I-85 (District 11 serves 8 counties, including Durham and Orange Counties).
District 11 Office: 3314 NC Hwy 86 South Hillsborough, NC 27278-8711 Voice: 919-732-8105 Fax: 919-732-4005 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you visit the web site and decide to request a burn permit online, you will be asked to review the air quality regulations related to outdoor burning. It is very important that you are aware that burning within 100 feet of an occupied dwelling is regulated by county authority (i.e., your fire department), not by the NCDFR.
