Permission to Burn & Gate Codes



The Tallahassee Fire Protection District is the official government agency responsible for permitting and regulating all controlled burns and instituting fire bans within the District.  All requests by owners or residents of the District to conduct a controlled burn are subject to prior approval.  PERMISSION IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO BURNING!


Requests can be made by contacting TFPD by email
info@talxfire.com  OR  call 719-275-3058.


Please ensure we can reliably contact you by phone or you check your email regularly if we need to contact you about your burn.

DO NOT BURN WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL.  The cost of responding to fires that were initiated without prior approval may be billed to the owner or resident who failed to obtain the necessary approval.


Please ensure that you notify Fremont County Non-Emergency Dispatch of all gate codes -- whether it is a main gate to a subdivision  OR  a gate to your personal property.  Having your gate code on file is imperative for TFPD personnel -- whether Firefighters or Emergency Medical Services -- in order to gain immediate access to your property in the case of any emergency.

Phone Number:  719-276-5555

It is also recommended that you notify TFPD of gate codes.
