Sometimes you will need to burn grass, bush piles or stubble. Please be sure you are well-prepared and that you have fire guards in place and water readily available. These "controlled burns" should also be reported. If you don't phone in your controlled burn and someone reports a fire to 911, if a fire department is dispatched you could be billed for the service.
To report a CONTROLLED BURN CALL 1-866-404-4911
(The number is answered 24/7 - 365 days a year)
You will be asked:
- What is your RM number?
- Who is your Fire Service Provider?
- What are the location details?
- What are you burning?
- How long will your burn last?
- Your name and phone number.
You will also be asked to call back once the burn has been completed.
