End of wildfire season

Residents living outside the Forest Protection Area (FPA) can contact their municipality or local authority for more information about fire permit requirements.

Before burning debris or brush this winter, make sure you have the proper tools on hand and only burn what you can control. Remember to revisit your burn site several times to make sure it’s properly extinguished. Follow our guidelines
