On-Line Burn Permits

The Grantham Fire Department is now allowing Fire Permits to be obtained online. The online permits are available for your convenience, and there is a small fee which is used to maintain the online program. This fee goes directly to the program developer not the town or the state.


Paper permits are still available at no cost through your Forest Fire Warden or the Grantham Fire Department on these days.
