Smaller 3’ diameter campfire/rec fires are allowed with the following guidelines: • Recreational fires are allowed to a maximum of 3 feet in diameter at the base. In addition, flames should be no higher than 3 feet. • Only natural wood may be burned. Treated or painted wood, plastic, rubber, leaves, and grass may not be burned. • Recreational fires must be constantly attended until the fire is extinguished. • Fires shall not be conducted within 15 feet of a structure or combustible material. A permit is not required for recreational fires. However, property owners are expected to follow the guidelines outlined below for their safety, the safety of others, and to help protect the environment.

Urban Coyotes We receive a number of calls from residents stating they saw a coyote in their neighborhood. Unfortunately, there is not a lot that public safety can do unless there is an imminent concern for safety. If you are concerned about the presence of coyotes where you live, consider the following do's and don'ts: (this and additional information available via the link below) DO: •secure all garbage containers, wildlife feeders, and other food sources to prevent coyote access •confine small dogs and cats in kennels, or supervise them when outside DON'T: •do not feed coyotes •do not leave pet food outside •do not allow cats and small dogs outside, unattended https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/livingwith_wildlife/coyotes/index.html

It's outdoor cooking season. Have you cleaned your grill? The leading causes of grill fires are: -failure to properly clean the grill -having the grill too close to something that could catch fire -leaving the grill unattended. https://youtu.be/65RCHLNIKa8

Not all superheroes wear capes! Some wear helmets, badges, headsets, bike shorts, pink sunglasses, Santa hats, bunker gear, and rubber gloves. They don't fly through the air, but they protect you from drunk drivers, save you from smoke and flame, provide medical service in crisis, take your call in your worst moment, and care more than you will ever know. Today we celebrate a different kind of superhero! #nationalsuperheroday #Woodburypublicsafety #Washington County Sheriff's Office

A few officers enjoying the spring day and supporting local business.

As of today, brush burns are not allowed based on the current restrictions from the DNR. Recreation/campfires (smaller 3’ x 3' fires) are currently still allowed. With that said, we have responded to a number of grass fires over the last couple of days. Use extreme caution when burning anything in your yard. Always have water nearby, don't leave fire unattended, and consider the wind before burning. The website link below is updated daily with statewide fire danger and burning restriction information: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/firerating_restrictions.html

We wish Woodbury High School a safe and fun Prom! Pictured: WHS Resource Officer Noren and his lovely date.

Tonight’s fire training included auto extrication. The tools are really great, but we’d prefer if we don’t have to use them on preventable crashes...put the phone down. #justdrive
