2234-Youtube Smokeybear.Online Burn Permits now available @ NH Forests and Lands

The State of NH Division of Forests and Lands is now offering an online Burn Permitting System and the Town of Goffstown is a participating town. A brief introduction can be found below or you can find more information by visiting the NH Division of Forest and Lands website.

"The New Hampshire Forests and Lands Division is pleased to offer citizens the option to purchase open burning permits online! Through our easy online process, you will be able to purchase an open burning permit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing permits are being issued at the time. Although online burn permits can be purchased at any time, open burning can only be conducted after 5 p.m. and before 9 a.m. The only exception to the allowable burning times occurs if you have purchased a permit and there is a steady rain, or the ground is completely covered with snow. Depending on what town you are burning in, there are some variances to these times. Please read the minimum requirements on your permit carefully and make sure you have selected the proper location before starting your fire. Permits purchased for the wrong location are considered invalid. The online service is easy and payment by credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Discover) is quick and secure. You will be able to print your permit at the end of the online process." - NH Department of Forests and Lands Website
