Burning Permits

Note: Permits are not valid unless they are signed and sent back to the office.

Permits are obtained either in person, email or by fax.

The following are the permittee's responsibility:

  • keep all burns under control at all times,

  • must contact Foothills EMS at 1-888-808-3722 with their fire permit number prior to lighting and when the burn is completed,

  • if more than one day is required to burn, Foothills EMS must be contacted each day of the burn.

In the event of an open fire ban, all permits issued are considered void and no new permits will be issued.

Note: Failure to acquire a fire permit could result in a huge fire bill.

Please call the Municipal District Office for Fire Permit Status.
