Open Burning Information
Some homeowners in our fire district have asked what they should do BEFORE they start open burning of brush piles, leaves and yard waste.  Here are some suggestions from Doug Hagee, Fire Chief:
  • Notify MC Sheriff's Dept 870-449-4236 & AR Forestry 800-830-8015.
  • The property owner must light the fire and BE PRESENT during the burn.
  • Don't burn if windy or when burn ban signs are up (click top of this page).
  • Burning of household trash or manmade materials is illegal
  • Take precautions to ensure containment of fire or you could be liable.
  • Be carefule when burning around structures.
  • Be sure fire is completely out before leaving the burn area.
  • IMMEDIATELY phone MC Dispatcher (911) if fire gets out of control.
  • If you have questions, phone Doug Hagee or Ron Dana.
  • Phone Doug, 479-206-0350 or Ron, 870-656-8870 if you need help.

Note to homeowners who have an emergency generator
In the event of a structure fire, the power company will turn off the electrical power to the building.  However, many emergency generators start automatically when the power is cut and will continue to provide power to the structure.  If you have a self-starting, emergency generator, please alert responding firefighters of its existence.  If you can  safely shut the generator off, please do so.

Fire Dues
2024 Fire Dues (membership fees) of $50 are due by January 1.  Members who have paid the annual fee receive fire protection services at no additional cost.  Non-members will likely be charged for fire services at hourly rates established by the state of Arkansas for VFD personnel and equipment.
