What do I need a "Burn Permit" for and how do I get it?

When you have agricultural materials that need to be burned, a "Burn Permit" is required.  Only agricultural materials (no trash) from properties zoned for commercial agriculture may be burned on designated "Burn Days". A Burn Permit must be obtained from your closest fire station.   The Burn Permit may only be used as per the conditions on the permit.

What are the fire prevention requirements for my project?
