Reminder that you need a fire permit for big brush burns only, not camp fires (they are required from April 1st – October 31st). You can pick up your permit at the Municipal Office, have it faxed or emailed during their business hours. Permits for Saturday burning can be picked up on the Friday before. The permits are only good for the day of issue. Remember that you are still responsible for your fire even though you have a permit, so don’t burn in windy conditions.
Campfires DO NOT require a fire permit, only brush burns. Please see below for the camp fire rules.
RULES FOR A CAMP FIRE
