In case of an emergency call 911
Most of the Rural Municipality 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 (all year) and can be filled out here. 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 burning, click here.
The Rural Municipality of Mountain is home to two Fire Departments, which are completely made up of volunteers who provide their time, energy and resources in order to keep our Municipality safe.
