Promoting Safe Fire practices Across the County 

Are you thinking about burning that big brush pile in the back 40 that’s been there for a bunch of years? Getting rid of that pile of wood from the old shed you tore down this fall? Or maybe you just bought your new property and are planning to clear space to build your new home. Whatever kind of burning you may be thinking about, you need to be aware that you have some responsibilities as a County resident to follow the Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Bylaw that will benefit both you, your neighbours and the travelling public.

Smoke from burning piles can often affect visibility for those driving in the area, and can cause physical discomfort for some. Pre-planning your burning can help mitigate these problems and we have just the solution for you!

By contacting your local County Fire Guardian, you will have access to great knowledge about where to build your burn piles, how big and how far apart to build them, and when the best conditions for burning are. Additionally, you’ll get the proper paperwork to avoid a possible fine for an un-permitted burn.
