Burn permits are available online and are required for residents living outside the city limits and located in Rural Fire District #1. Burn permits are valid for 6 months, either January-June or July-December. A county resident is allowed unlimited burns during that time but must call 913-294-4444 Option 4 before each burn. There are additional regulations that are detailed in the permit form. Completed permits may be returned to City Hall or emailed to the address on the form. Forms are also available at City Hall. City residents do not need a permit but burning is only allowed on Fridays and Saturdays.
For other non-emergency inquiries or to arrange a tour of the fire station for your organization, contact the fire department at 913-837-4700.
The City is fortunate to maintain a Level Four ISO Rating. This high rating helps keep local property insurance rates low for property owners. Louisburg is able to achieve this rating due to a dedicated group of volunteers that respond to emergencies; with improvements to the local water distribution system made in recent years; and with the assistance of Miami County in housing some of its rural equipment at the fire station in Louisburg.
