Training Burn

To our residents and neighbors,

On Monday, August 22, 2022, the Putnam Township Fire Department will be conducting a training burn at 2708 Tiplady Rd. between Dexter Townhall Road and Silver Hill Road. This burn will take place around 6:30 p.m. and will probably last 2 to 3 hours.

A large column of smoke may be seen around this area, but you can be assured that we have spent plenty of time to ensure the safety and security of not only the staff on hand to assist with this burn, but the area involved, as well as the community. Lastly, Tiplady Road will be closed to traffic between Dexter Townhall Road and Silver Hill Road, only allowing local traffic/homeowners access during the time of the active fire department activities. It will be reopened by the end of the night. There will be several fire apparatus' moving around the area. Please avoid this area during this time if possible.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the department at the between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 734-878-6788.
