BEFORE YOU BURN IT, GET YOUR PERMIT

  • Fire permits are free and you can get more information or request a fire permit by calling our Grande Prairie Fire Center office at 780-538-5560.
  • Please call our office in advance of when you would like to burn in order to give our staff time to make arrangements to come out to your site and issue your permit.
  • Remember that you must evaluate the weather at your specific location and follow the conditions stated on your permit. You can be held responsible if a fire escapes the burn permit area.
  • All permits must be completely extinguished before they expire.
