Can I call in using a different phone then the one I registered to my account?
Yes. However, when prompted by the auto-attendant, be sure to insert the telephone number associated to your account. You can add additional phone numbers to your account via the jcfpd.burnpermits.com website. If you login, My Profile will appear at the top of the page. Select My Profile and add your other phone number to your account.
How long is my burn registered for after I call into the phone system?
Burns will be registered for a 24-hour period. There will be no need to call again within the 24-hour period to register.
I call the appropriate phone number but the system will not recognize my number. What can I do?
Ensure that you are entering the registered 10-digit phone number that you used when applying for your permit. If successful, the phone system will tell you the current risk level and will ask you if you are intending to burn at a specific address. Press 1 or follow the steps outlined on the phone system from there. Your burn will be registered once you hear: “Thank you, your response has been registered. Have a nice day!”
