Here are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Stone Bank Fire Department. If these don’t answer your questions, please contact us.
Do you issue burning permits? What are the requirements?
We do issue burning permits to residents within our fire coverage area and the process is done completely online. See the burning information page for the requirements.
I heard a severe weather siren, why did it go off?
The Town of Merton has a severe weather siren directly behind the Stone Bank Fire Department. The Waukesha County Communications Center (WCC) activates this siren based upon certain conditions.
