NWFPD’s Online Burn Permit System
Apply for your online burn permit today!
**As of 8/1/2019, NWFPD is transitioned to a fully online burn permit system. The goal of this is to create an easy process for the user and to better inform NWFPD of burns within the district.
Open nwfpd.burnpermits.com. This homepage has NWFPD’s contact information, current fire danger, and answers to questions that you may have.
Click on the create account tab and fill out the form with the same information you would have used with the old paper format. The burn site can be marked exactly on Google Maps, which helps NWFPD know where there are burns in case NWFPD is dispatched to a smoke sighting. You can pay online via PayPal, but you do not have to have a PayPal account. You can also pay later in person at NWFPD’s Station 2 via cash or check. The amount is still the same at $10.
When you burn, you call (719) 270-2967, which is the number listed on your burn permit. It is an automated system where you report your burn. You no longer have to call NWFPD to report your burn.
If you have any questions, please call NWFPD at 719-836-3150.
NWFPD appreciates your cooperation and effort in making District 4 safer.
