BURN PERMITS
OUTDOOR BURNING in Missoula County
MCFPA members want to prevent unwanted fire
and its more destructive effects. One way to do this is to regulate the use of fire through a burn permit system. Local fire officials, cooperating with the Missoula City-County Health Department, have been issuing burning permits since the 1990s. The result has been a reduction in the number of fire escapes and 911 calls leading to non-critical dispatch.

MCFPA members use an ONLINE BURN PERMIT system. Implemented in 2012, this approach is SEASONAL and helps with permitting, reporting, and tracking wanted/temporary outdoor burns within the county. The online system is particularly useful in rural areas where local fire service depends on volunteers.

SO we ask you to become a partner with the MCFPA. Use fire wisely and with an appropriate permit when it's outdoors.  Learn how to prepare for wildland fire, and visit here often for useful news and updates! 
Thanks for stopping by today.
Always use the BURNING PERMIT system in Missoula County. And, if you see an illegal or unwanted fire, please CALL 9-1-1.
ALWAYS Use
