Applications & Forms
The Northeast Teller County Fire Protection District offers residents of the county the opportunity to dispose of slash through burning. The City of Woodland Park prohibits open burningwith exception to small recreational fires not exceding three foot flame lengths, therefore, we do not issue paperwork for permits within the city limits.
To receive a burn permit, you must first contact the fire district at 687-1866 and request a burn site inspection. You will need to be present during the inspection and your site must meet certain criteria. Remember that you must have firefighting tools (garden hose, shovels, a fire extinguisher, etc.) and there must be access for firefighting vehicles to your site.
Upon completion and approval of the inspection, you may take the NETCFPD Burn Permit Inspection Form to the Teller County Sheriff’s Office in Divide, CO to purchase the county burn permit.

NETCFPD has an active group of citizen volunteers, many of whom are also Teller County first responders, who provide back up and assistance to the District so that the professionals can focus on their primary responsibilities. Our duties can change from time to time in order to meet the demands and needs of the District and community. Please fill out the “Volunteer and Fire Corps Application” if you are interested in joining the Northeast Teller County Fire District Fire Corps.
The requirements for being a member of Fire Corps enable most average citizens to participate. No fire experience is necessary.

Our business and training meeting is the 3rd Thursday of every month, starting at 12pm and lasting approximately two hours.
