BRUSH FIRES
Do your part to prevent brush fires, keep brush cut back from your property.

When it is time to rake your leaves, don't leave them in a pile in the front of your yard. Fires have occurred because of cars parking over a pile of leaves. The heat from the car's exhaust can ignite the leaves and ultimately the car.

Contact Brick Township Public Works for leaf pickup schedules 732-451-4061 or visit their web site http://www.bricktownship.net/publicworks/


Leaves can also be ignited when a poorly discarded cigarette/cigar is thrown out a car window.


How can brush fires occur?

Some occur because of lightning strikes. But more occur because of human error. A discarded lit cigarette, a campfire left unattended or not fully extinguished, and others may be intentionally set.
