Brush Fire Team
Edneyville Fire & Rescue has members of the department that have training in Wildland Fire Suppression. These members form our brush fire team. When the need arises inside and outside of the Edneyville Fire District this team fill’s those needs.
Edneyville Fire Department is a certified burning permit agent meeting the requirements of the NC Forest Service. These permits are issued to residents in the community for disposal of yard accumulation debris only. There is no charge for the permits and they are available every day between the hours of 08:00 and 5:00 p.m. You can also obtain a burning permit from the NCFS by Clicking Here. The permits do not permit someone to burn machine piled debris. If a resident needs to dispose of machine piled debris they should contact NC Air Quality Control for a valid permit.
