EMERGENCY NUMBER - Call 911
Fire Permits are REQUIRED on a YEAR ROUND BASIS for all types of Open Burning. Fire permits are issued for 10 days at a time. There is no fee for this service.
Fire Permits can be obtained from the County of St. Paul Main Office.
Any brush piles that were ignited over the winter, should be checked to ensure that they are completely extinguished and that there is no danger of a ground fire starting.
Fires must be attended at all times and should be completely extinguished before they are left unattended. County residents with burning barrels are reminded that they can be a problem in spring conditions and a spark-arresting screen must be in place.
The County of St. Paul No. 19 would like to stress that landowners who are issued Fire Permits, must contact the Bonnyville 911 Dispatch Service prior to igniting their fire at 780-826-7446.
Please Note: All approved fires by Permit are subject to Provincial or local Fire Bans, declared upon the threat of a fire hazard to the citizens or property within the boundaries of the County of St. Paul No. 19.
Please review our Fire Bylaw for more details.
