Maine Forest Service to present wildfire prevention plan to the town of Raymond

Tuesday June 1, 2021 at the Public Safety Building

6:30pm - open to the public 

Maine’s Forest Rangers have a wildland fire prevention program to help communities reduce the risk of wildfire near their homes. Throughout Maine, an average of 500 wildfires are reported annually. In 2020, due to drought conditions, the number of wildfires increased to over 1154 fires that burned 1047 acres. Out of those fires, nearly ¾’s threaten, damage or destroy structures. Compared to other rural communities, Raymond is at a moderate to high risk for a wildfire due to limited access, the build-up of forest fuels and close proximity of structures.

During the fall of 2018 and in the spring of 2019, over fifty wildfire risk assessments were conducted randomly in the Wild Acres community and throughout Raymond. Only the exterior of the houses and the surrounding landscape were evaluated for fire risk. The results of these wildfire risk assessment have been summarized in a report called a “Community Wildfire Protection Plan.”

On Tuesday, June 1 at 6:30pm, several Forest Rangers will give a presentation on the CWPP at the Raymond Public Safety Building at 1443 Roosevelt Trail. The presentation should last about 30 – 40 minutes. Seats will be 6’ to 8’ feet apart and face coverings will be worn. Members of the Raymond Fire and Rescue Department have provided input to the CWPP and will also be in attendance. At the end, there will be a short discussion of the MFS free “Defensible Space Chipping Program.” Raymond now qualifies for the program, which provide one day of brush chipping for homeowners who have cut brush near their structures.




Burning permits may be issued for after 5 PM burning depending on the fire danger classification. The exception is day burning may be allowed if it is actively raining. It is the time of year which allows for rapidly changing conditions and fire spread due the the fuels being dead, winds intensify with radiational heating and cooling, and humidity is lower in the day hours allowing for fires to escape. After 5 PM winds typically die down and humidity rises making it safer to burn with a lower risk of spread.


This ends when we arrive at green up typically the end of May.
