Revised Online Burn Permit Application

June 28, 2018

Foothills Fire Department Releases a Revised and Updated Online Burn Permit Application

HIGH RIVER, Alberta – June 26, 2018 – Media Advisory – The Foothills Fire Department is pleased to announce that they have released a newly revised and updated online Burn Permit application accessible at mdfoothills.com

“This new process for issuing Burn Permits online has greatly increased the accessibility and accountability for residents burning,” says Jim Smith, Fire Chief. “Plus it will allow us to manage the burns and collect statistics for future planning. We know who and where permitted burns are taking place at the time of the burn.”

Receiving approval to burn with a burn permit is a quicker process now. The Fire Department utilizes an app which allows them to respond immediately, or at most within a few hours of the submission.  The permitting process is monitored by the department on a 24/7 basis.
