BURN PERMIT SYSTEM in Missoula County Montana 
Local fire officials, cooperating with the Missoula City-County Health Dept., have been issuing Burning Permits since 1990. The result is a reduction in the number of fire escapes and 911 calls leading to non-critical dispatch.
Missoula County Fire Protection Association 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.
SO 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.
MCFPA's ONLINE SEASONAL BURN PERMIT SYSTEM helps fire officials with permitting, reporting, and tracking wanted / temporary outdoor burns within the County. The online system is useful in rural areas where local fire service depends on volunteers.
