NOTE: this is an application for a Fire Permit ONLY.
When an application is successfully submitted a response page will pop up with your permit number (eg: 2022 - 000001). This number is what you need to conduct your burn, so record or screen shot the issued number from the application response page and keep that number with you at all times. Once you have this number recorded you do not need any other documentation and can proceed with your planned burn.
If there are any issues with a permit application, the County office will contact the applicant through the contact information provided in the permit application.
Please note fire permits are required year-round

- Be familiar with and abide by the requirements of the Forest and Prairie Protection Act, the regulations there under and Mountain View County Fire Bylaw No. 10/22.
