New burn permit system launched

Smoldering Pile of Yard Debris


Those burning their yard debris this spring will be utilizing a new online burn-permitting system.

Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Chief Roger Johnson said, “We are extremely pleased to offer the community a more user-friendly, free, online permitting system enabling users to obtain important information and services online while allowing district staff to track outdoor burns more effectively and disseminate important fire safety information.”

Permits must be obtained online by visiting the district’s website: To register for a permit, your name, street address and phone number are required. Those who do not have Internet access can go to the main fire station at 301 S. Elm St. in Sisters and use a public-access computer to apply, or have district staff sign them up.
