Volunteer firefighters provide fire protection services for Lamont County from five different fire halls. The fire halls in Bruderheim, Lamont, and Mundare are contracted to provide fire protection services to Lamont County residents and each hall has their own district. Lamont County Emergency Services also operates fire departments in Andrew and in Chipman (separate from the village of Chipman department), for Chipman area residents.
To find out which fire district you reside in, check the Fire Districts Map.
We would like to thank our volunteer firefighters for making a difference in our community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the municipality in your fire district.
There is no burning of brush piles in Lamont County between April 1st and October 31st as per Lamont County Policy #4135.
Fire permits are required for any type of burn year round. Fire permits are no charge and can be issued from Andrew, Bruderheim, Lamont, and Mundare administration offices. Some important things to remember about your fire permit:
- First call the Lamont County Fire Advisory Line at 780-895-7674 listen for information on current fire ban status.
- Read the section of the permit relating to wind conditions and the phone number for the weather station.
- It is strongly recommended that you have fire insurance.
- Read both sides of the permit; side1 has regulations and side 2 has the bylaws & conditions.
- If you do not obtain a fire permit and the fire department responds to a report of a fire on your property, even if your burn is contained, you will be responsible for the costs associated with the dispatching of the fire units to your property.
