A Burn Authorization Application must be completed prior to any burn. The KVFD is reminding residents to review burning regulations on the RDOS website before completing the Burn Authorization application.

  • Permitted burning materials include: pruning branches, trunks and tree stumps.

  • Check venting index prior to burning, by calling 250-490-4125 AFTER 8:00 am.

  • Compostable material shall not be burned.

  • Burn is monitored at all times by a responsible adult.

  • Burn is completely out and cold before leaving the fire unattended.

  • Ensure that no burning occurs when the forecast is for windy period during or immediately after the burn.

It is important for property owners to consider their neighbours and the environment before burning.


If you have questions about the process, please contact Kaleden Volunteer Fire Department (KVFD), at kaledenfire@shaw.ca or 250-497-8231; leave a message and someone will return your call.
