State fire wardens determine each day whether conditions are safe for open burning. Weather and air quality can change rapidly, especially in the spring, and fire departments can rescind permits when that happens. Open burning may be done between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. from January 15 to May 1. Please click the following links for more information about burning.
Hoping to burn today? Call our station after 9:30 a.m. at 508-428-2210, press 5 to see if burning is allowed.

Cotuit Fire Regulations
Cotuit Fire has replaced a 2005 21’ Edge Water with a 2014 USCG 29’ Metal Shark Marine. The boat was acquired as surplus, for free, from the USCG and had an initial cost of $311,442. It was updated with new electronics with donations from David Mugar and the Cotuit Firefighters Association including; FLIR, Radar, 3D sonar, AIS, and a portable fire pump. The new boat greatly improves our marine rescue/fire capabilities and the safety of our team. Cotuit Fire Department is conducting a naming contest and will hold a christening ceremony at a date TBD. Please check the “Cotuit Fire & Rescue Department” Facebook page for upcoming details.
