Burn permits are free of charge and good for 10 days after you obtain it. By obtaining the fire safety burn permit you will help inform fire managers where permitted burning activity is occurring so they can better protect Idaho citizens and resources.
You also will help prevent false runs to fires, saving firefighting resources for instances where they truly are needed.
Obtaining the fire safety burn permit lets fire managers know where permitted burning is occurring so they can respond more quickly to a controlled burn if it escapes, potentially reducing the liability of the burner. Obtaining a fire safety burn permit ensures your burning operation is in compliance with Idaho law (Idaho Code 38-115). Other laws related to open burning in Idaho also apply. (Idaho Burn Permit)
