Fire Season Has Begun

Outdoor burning is restricted during fire season from April 1 to October 31.  As outlined in our open-air burning by-law, our burning permit and the FFPA (Forest Fire Prevention Act), outdoor burning is permitted from 2 hours before sunset to 2 hours after sunrise, with a valid permit. There is NO DAYTIME BURNING permitted during the fire season. This includes piles that may be smoldering the next day. They must be extinguished before the 2 hours after sunrise timeframe. The time restriction is to ensure burning is conducted at the safest time of the day. If you have piles that have been burnt over the winter, it is your responsibility to ensure these are OUT effective April 1st. IF IT"S WINDY DON"T BURN!!!!!
