FIRE BAN IN EFFECT

Source: Perth East
Date: Wed Jul 11 07:55:44 MST 2018

Effective immediately, all open air fires are prohibited anywhere in the Townships of Perth East and Perth South and the Municipality of West Perth. Open air fires are defined as any fire outside of a building and include bonfires, campfires, burn barrels, outdoor fireplaces/chimineas or any other fires set in open air.

The only exceptions to the ban are cooking fires within approved campgrounds. Cooking fires are permitted on campsites from noon (12:00PM) to midnight (12:00AM) only. After midnight, all fires must be completely extinguished.

This fire ban is being imposed due to the extreme dryness of all vegetation in the area. Provincial forest and wild-land fire indicators are all at extreme levels. This ban shall remain in effect until further notice.

With the pending grain harvest, farmers are encouraged to exercise extreme caution with combining, as field fires can quickly overtake equipment, neighbouring crops and these fires can spread quickly into adjacent woodlands.

If you discover an open air fire, it is very important that you report fires immediately to 9-1-1. Do not delay reporting while attempting to control or extinguish the fire.

All burn permits in these municipalities are now suspended.

If you have any questions regarding this order, please contact your local Fire Department.
