Lacombe County reminds ratepayers that fire permit season starts on March 1, 2021. Burning without a fire permit can result in a hefty fine.
Ratepayers can submit their fire permits 24/7 online through the Lacombe County website (www.lacombecounty.com) or through the my Lacombe County app (iPhone users only). They can also request permits in person at the Lacombe County Office or by calling 403-782-8959 during business hours.
“It’s about public safety and burning responsibly,” said Bussiere. “Fire permits are free of charge and easy to obtain, yet we continue to have situations where people don’t take out a permit and can be charged under the bylaw. The intent of fire permit requirements is simply to ensure the safety of Lacombe County residents and their neighbours.”
