Fire Pit Application and Permit

Anyone who has a fire pit in on their property, which includes portable fire pits purchased through local retail outlets, requires a permit issued from the Town of Strathmore. The Town of Strathmore is responsible under By-Law 05-02 to ensure the safety of yourself and neighbors regarding back-yard fire pits. This is done by site inspections or through detailed drawings and photographs with your application and submitted for review by fire department members. 

Should the fire department be called out to your property, your permit must be readily available to firefighters for verification of your Fire Pit’s registered.

How do I apply for a fire pit permit

The Strathmore Fire department charges a one-time fee of $20 to each property for the inspection / registration of the Fire Pit. The fee will be invoiced to the resident.  Permits can not be transferred between home owners or occupants upon sale or vacating rental units.

  • Download our fire pit permit application form
  • Email your completed application to Judy.Unsworth@strathmore.ca. Ensure that you include pictures of the fire pit and the area surrounding it. 
  • The application will either be approved or declined. The invoice and the permit will be emailed to the resident.

How long does my permit last

Once you receive a fire pit permit for your current home and fire pit it is valid until you move or build a new fire pit.

  • New home —new permit
  • New fire pit — new permit
  • Same home, same fire pit—same permit
