Burn Permit Terms and Safe Burning Tips
  • No burning between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm 
  • Only burn in safe conditions, never on windy days
  • Keep your burning job small enough that you keep it under control at all times.
  • Never leave a fire unattended until the fire is out completely
  • Drown your fire once it is out to ensure embers don't start up again
