In case of an emergency call 911

Most of the R.M. of Mountain is within the Provincial Burn Permit Area, requiring a permit from Manitoba Conservation April 1st – November 15 (Call (204) 734-3429). A Burn Permit is also required from the Municipality. Permits are available at no cost and provide evidence of precautions taken to keep a fire under control.

Fires burning out of control may be investigated and charges may be laid under The Wildfires Act. Please respect weather conditions, continue to check our website for Fire Ban status, and never leave a fire unattended.

We wish all residents review the basic Do’s and Don’ts of buring, click here.
