Fire Permits

If you are planning to light an “open air” fire within a rural fire district you need to apply for a Fire Permit.  Permits are issued by the Rural Fire Authorities. You will find the online application process and contact details on the links below.

Fire Permit

There is valuable Fire Safety information provided via the above link that will enable you to reduce risk while in the forest or as an owner of a small forest plantation. It is very important that you ensure that you have adequate insurance cover to protect you from personal and business risk in the event of a fire. 

In case of fire your first call in New Zealand is always 111
