BurnWise Wood Heater Demonstration Trailer


Wood Heater Demonstration Trailer

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation's BurnWise wood heater demonstration trailer is a community education tool deployed at events to inform the community on the responsible use of domestic wood heaters.

For information on events and times the trailer will be deployed, see Burnwise Program.

The deployment of the trailer at these events is subject to the weather. If rain and/or high winds are forecast, the trailer will not be deployed.

Two wood heaters are mounted on the trailer to demonstrate how to operate a wood heater responsibly and show differences in smoke and heat output between compliant and non-compliant wood heaters. The trailer also has a display showing short films and copies of all of the BurnWise brochures.
