Welcome to the Madbury, NH, Volunteer Fire Department.
Madbury is a rural town in Southeastern New Hampshire located between Dover, Lee, Barrington, and Durham. The 30 volunteers of the Madbury Fire Department and Madbury F.A.S.T. (First Aid Stabilization Team) operate two engines, one tanker, two forestry units, and a utility vehicle.
PROPER ASH DISPOSAL:
For safety’s sake: It is recommended to dispose of ash in a covered steel can. For example, use a small galvanized garbage can.
Or, use two: filling one and letting the other sit for a week or so before spreading them in the yard. We’ve seen glowing embers in the pail 3-4 days after going in the can. This can should be stored outside and/or on a non-combustible surface.
