The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced that it will begin issuing burn permits.
In most of the southern Lower Peninsula, burn permits are issued by local fire departments and local government offices. Make sure to check local regulations before you burn.
With more favorable fuel conditions occurring as Michigan moves toward the “green-up” of vegetation where plants and trees are leafing out and filled with sap, fire potential can now be regulated based on local fire danger ratings. These ratings are based on weather conditions, including anticipated wind and rain.
Year after year, burning yard debris is the top cause of wildfires in Michigan. People who want to burn are still expected to check in at Michigan.gov/BurnPermit to make sure fires are allowed on the day they want to burn.
The SCFD is on-call to respond to calls for assistance 24-hours a day x 365 days a year. If you need emergency assistance please call 911 and provide the dispatch center with the address of the emergency and information regarding the situation.
The SCFD’s administrative offices are located in the heart of the City of Saint Clair at 216 Cass Street. While we are available to respond to calls for assistance at any time, our fire station is staffed part time during the week, generally Monday through Friday 9am – 5pm.

On behalf of myself, the dedicated members of the Saint Clair Fire Department (SCFD), and their families we welcome you to our website. Our mission and goal for this forum is to provide valuable and timely information regarding our department, safety tips, and call statistics.
The SCFD is charged with the responsibility of providing professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency preparedness, emergency medical services, fire prevention, and public education to our community. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster. We accomplish this through effective preparation, training and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe and timely manner with sufficient resources to address the situation.
Within this outstanding team, the SCFD is a key member in providing community safety. We accept and embrace this challenge with vigor and commitment. As the world evolves and the needs of our community changes, our mission has evolved to one that is not simply confined to “traditional” fire services. Therefore, our mission reflects a corresponding need for our fire department to think and operate in a more encompassing manner.
