Property owners are responsible for paying the cost of fighting fires on their property. Check with your insurance agent to determine if your fire insurance policy covers the cost of fighting fires. It is possible to obtain an endorsement with an additional premium to provide coverage to reimburse you for any costs incurred for the response of the fire trucks and personnel.

Controlled burns:

When doing a controlled burn please notify the Provincial Public Safety Communication Center. Call 1-866-404-4911 and tell them that you are doing a controlled burn. They will ask for your legal description, phone number, name and which fire department covers your area. Notifying the center will prevent false alarms and conserve precious resources for your volunteer fire department. You will also avoid an unwanted fire call charge.
