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. These "controlled burns" should also be reported to avoid dispatching firefighters unnecessarily.
Report a controlled burn anywhere in the province.
The number is answered 24/7 – 365 days.
Questions you will be asked:
- What is your land location?
- 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 be asked to call back once the burn has been completed.
If you plan to burn in or within 4.5 kilometres of the provincial forest during the wildfire season (April 1 to October 31), you may also need a burn notification number. These are available from the Ministry of Environment's Wildfire Management Forest Protection Offices.
