Just a reminder for everyone as to how the new burning authorization process works.

The burn season is now from October 15th to April 15th so rather than having to apply in the fall and again first thing in the new year, you apply once per burn season. There is also no fee associated with this process anymore. You simply click on the link provided below, read and acknowledge the appropriate documents and submit your application.

The Fire Chief will be emailed automatically and will review your application and approve it unless he/she feels that an inspection of the property is needed in which case they will notify you.

Once your application has been approved, you simply phone the venting index number provided to confirm that the venting is appropriate to burn that day and if it is, you can proceed, following the safety steps outlined in the application.

Also, if you have neighbours who are not on the internet and you don’t mind reaching out to them, please let them know about this process.
