Solutions to PDF issues

Some browsers use a PDF viewer that does not support the burning permit form and may claim that it contains a virus. These browsers are generally defaulted to their own PDF viewers rather than Adobe Reader. Using Internet Explorer will usually resolve the issue; otherwise there are three options available:

  1. Reconfigure your browser [exit DNR] to work with the Adobe Reader or Acrobat plug-in, or
  2. Save a copy of the permit to your computer and then open it using Adobe Reader [exit DNR] , or
  3. Contact us and we will mail your permit to you.

Burning permit application

In order to protect the health and safety of the citizens of Wisconsin, we are taking proactive measures by suspending all DNR burning permits until further notice. Therefore, all burning debris in barrels, piles on the ground and grass or wooded areas with annual burning permits in DNR protection areas is prohibited at this time. If the ground is completely snow-covered and will remain so for the duration of the burn, burning permits are not required and burning is allowed at any time.

Eliminating ignition sources on the landscape reduces wildfire risk, smoke for vulnerable population and person-to-person contact. Emergency responders and firefighters have an increased need to take pandemic precautions so they remain available to continue to protect the public from wildfires and reduce the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Remember to report wildfires by dialing 911 immediately.
