Total Open Air Burn Ban

The Fire Departments of Lanark County will be implementing a TOTAL OPEN-AIR BURN BAN as of Thursday, April 2nd, 2020 until further notice.

 

The ban applies to all open-air fires including agricultural burns, brush piles, burn barrels, campfires, chimeneas, cooking fires, consumer fireworks, incinerators and other types of outdoor burning, but does not include cooking appliances with a mechanical shutoff, i.e. propane or natural gas cooking equipment.

 

Due to the concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the need for social distancing and to assist in the health, safety and well-being of our firefighters we placed an open-air burn ban as a precautionary measure to avoid any additional strain on our fire services at this time.

 

We are committed to providing and maintaining emergency response within our communities and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we cope with this uncertain and unprecedented situation.

 

If you have any questions please contact the Fire Department at 613-257-5526
