1531 - Woodbury Fire and East Montpelier Fire to 601 Marshfield Road in Calais for a smoke/CO detector activation.
I just spoke with Hardwick Electric and they said that the folks that live on Greenwood lake road, the County Road, and any roads that are off those roads will not have any power tonight. They are hoping to have it fixed by the end of the day Saturday.
The damage in that area is extensive and will take some time to repair.
Are you planning to fire off a few firecrackers for the Fourth of July? A roman candle on graduation day? All Vermont residents should be aware that the use of any fireworks requires a permit.
Vermont law, which can be read in 20 V.S.A. 3131, 3132 and 3135, says that for anything larger than a sparkler or other novelty sparkling item, a permit must be obtained from the chief of the fire department, after the chief has determined that the fireworks display will be handled by a competent operator in a manner that will not be hazardous to people or property. Application for a permit must be made at least 15 days in advance of the fireworks display.
Please also be aware that this only covers Class 'C', or consumer fireworks. For other classes you will need a permit from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) in addition to this permit..
You can read more at the Department of Public Safety's website here.
If you have an emergency, please call 911.
You can reach Assistant Chief Thom Leno at 802-225-8949.
We look forward to hearing from you.
