Burning permit application

At any time of the year, you MUST apply for a burning permit whenever you wish to have an outdoor fire or use fireworks. All outdoor fires and fireworks without a permit are subject to a fine.

NOTE: Please be advised that during the winter period, SOPFEU does not issue a fire danger index. Winter burning is permitted subject to compliance with the regulations and the application for a burning permit remains mandatory.

The burning permit is the official document of the Sutton Public Security Department that gives authorization to burn combustible materials or use fireworks in the municipalities of Sutton, Brome and Abercorn that it serves.

If you need help filling out the form, contact the Town Hall at 450 538-2290.

Before setting a fire or using a firework, make sure that you do the following:

  • If you are in Sutton: consult By-Law number 232 entitled « Fire Safety By-Law » of the Town of Sutton (in French only);
  • If you are in Brome: consult pages 25 and 26 of By-Law number 180-14 entitled « Fire Safety By-Law » of the Village of Brome (in French only);
