Fort Ellis Fire Department Annual Picnic
Our picnic in 2013 almost did not happen as Fort Ellis Volunteers were dispatched to two calls simultaneously -- a wildland fire and a motor vehicle accident -- both during the picnic.  Thankfully everyone was very understanding and these calls demonstrated that our volunteers can be called out at the most inopportune times!  This year your volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, demonstrate gear, provide fire truck rides for kids of all ages and most of all, grill up some great food.  Burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and drinks will be provided with all the fixings. Our tradition is that pot luck deserts are appreciated.  Donations of $5 per person will have to defray costs.
Thursday, August 14, 5:00 - 7:00 (Rain or Shine)
Where:  Fort Ellis Fire Station, 3725 Bozeman Trail Rd
Who: Bring the whole family and tell  your neighbors.

Open burning for which a burn permit is required is allowed in the Fort Ellis Fire Service Area

Fort Ellis Fire Department officials will evaluate fire conditions on a day-by-day basis to determine if conditions warrant temporarily closing the burn permit system. Please be sure to purchase a burn permit and to activate it BEFORE any outside burning. Please see the Burn Permit page on this website for more information.
