Forest Fire Season is Here

Forest Fire Season is Here

Monday, May 1 officially marked the beginning of the 2023 forest fire season for the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador. During forest fire season, residents of Conception Bay South must obtain two permits before they are permitted to burn an open-air fire.

Permit Issued by Conception Bay South Fire Department
Burn permits are required in the Town of Conception Bay South year-round for open-air burning of vegetation, wood, and paper products. A permit to burn is not required for backyard fires, recreational campfires and boil-ups.

Obtain your burn permit easily online by visiting the following link: ONLINE BURN PERMITS

Permit Issued by Provincial Government
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador also requires that you obtain a provincial burn permit during the Forest Fire Season. Residents can visit the Paddy’s Pond Forest Management District Office to obtain this permit, located at 220 Paddy’s Pond Rd, St. John’s, NL, or by calling their office at 709-729-4180.

The Conception Bay South Fire Department asks residents to assess the forest fire risk before starting a fire, be courteous of neighbours while burning, and read the Town’s Open Air Fire Regulations.
