Union Bay Fire Rescue Supporting Safe Burning Practices

Fire Permits

Fire permits help keep the department informed about burning activities. A fire permit details safe burning practices that can help reduce property damage, personal injury and wildfires.

Fire Permits are required April 1 to Oct 31 for all open burning in the Union Bay fire protection area, except for campfires.

Large, machine piled, industrial Category 3 burns require permits year-round.

Getting a Permit

Fire permits are free of charge and can be completed online, by printable PDF or completed in person at the fire department (by appointment)

Permit Cancellations

If fire hazards change in the area, fire permits may be cancelled. Permit holders will need to check the Union Bay Fire Rescue website prior to burning to ensure that fire bans are not in effect and that conditions are right for burning.
