Jasper Fire Department
The mission of the Jasper Fire Department is to protect life and property of the citizens and visitors of the City of Jasper from all hazards. The professional members of Jasper Fire Department will accomplish this mission through advanced education and training, and by providing prevention, public education, and mitigation services to the citizens and visitors of the City of Jasper.
Georgia’s Outdoor Burn Ban is in effect from May 1 through September 30 each year.
The City of Jasper Fire Department will no longer be issuing burn permits for controlled burns. Effective immediately, you will need to contact the Georgia Forestry Commission, by phone 1-877-OK2-BURN (652-2876) or online, for your permits.
We feel that this will save the citizens the trouble of coming by the fire department to obtain a permit, and with calling to get clearance for burning. We will still be enforcing the rules and regulations that the state issues for controlled fires including the statewide burn ban.
If you have any questions regarding the regulations, please feel free to contact us, we will be glad to help.
