The Fire Permit Program allows the Westlock County Fire Services to take a proactive approach to fire safety and education. All residents must have a fire permit before lighting any fires. You must either come to the office or contact the Fire Guardian closest to the potential burn site as listed below. An application for approval to conduct open burning will need to be completed for insurance purpose before contacting the Fire Guardian.
Low Hazard Fireworks require a "Purchase and Discharge Application form" to be filled out prior to purchase of Fireworks and is available at Westlock County Office BEFORE you contact the Fire Guardians and they will co-ordinate the best time to inspect site allowing time for you to complete the checklist and adivise neighbors of the time and date.
