Fire Permits

For all controlled burns within the township, a fire permit must be obtained.  Small recreational fires do not require a permit. The application for a fire permit can be submitted to the Township Office, or to the Fire Chief. Fire Permits cost $5.00 (cash only when paying in person) and are valid for 7 days.   

   ***NEW***   The application and payment can be done, and submitted, online by completing the All-In-One Fire Permit Form!

 

All fire regulations must be followed as set out in the Open Air Burning By-law.  If the fire rating changes to high or extreme while permits are active, then burn permits will be suspended and the remaining days will be reinstated once the fire rating returns to moderate or low.
