GEORGETOWN — John Guilfoil Public Relations (JGPR) is pleased to announce that FirePermits.com™, the one-stop turnkey solution to a fire department’s open burning needs, is now accepting payments via the 24/7 online payment portal UniPay. UniPay is a product of UniBank, a Massachusetts-based bank used by more than 85% of the state’s cities and towns.
FirePermits.com™ is inviting fire chiefs to get a jump start on their 2022 outdoor burning season now by using the code UNIPAY at checkout to receive $200 off their first year of services. Buy now, and manage next year’s burn season for just $799! Sale ends 6/30/21.
FirePermits.com™ offers fire departments in all 50 states a contactless and streamlined way to manage open burn permitting—from permit applications to active burn management. The new UniPay integration means that many fire departments can connect their burn permit payments directly to their municipality’s UniBank account, streamlining town accounting and burn permit fee management. UniPay accepts all major credit cards as well as ACH transactions.
“We’ve found that many fire departments are still processing checks for burn permits, which is an administrative burden. The FirePermits.com™ UniPay integration offers an easier way of doing things for both fire departments and residents alike,” said JGPR Special Projects Manager Melina Gambino.
UniBank’s UniBank for Government division is highly regarded in the municipal marketplace with over 215 collective years of experience doing business with more than 85% of the 351 cities and towns across the Commonwealth.
Once subscribed, a FirePermits.com™ site can be launched in 72 hours with a custom URL, branding, and the UniPay connection. For more information about the product, a customer service representative can be reached at [email protected].
