Burn Ban Has Been Lifted
Safe burning tips
Consider chipping or composting brush or grass before burning. If you must burn, make sure you know the rules and follow these tips to ensure you burn grass and woody debris safely.
Choose a safe time
Burn during the coolest, dampest and calmest time of the day: 2 hours before sunset, or later
a fire is more likely to get out of control on a hot, dry or windy day
Put fires out two hours after sunrise, or earlier.
Keep your fire small
small fires can be controlled by 1 person using hand tools and water
keep your pile of wood, brush, or wood by-products to be burned less than 2 metres in diameter and less than 2 metres high
An area of grass or leaves can be burned if the area is less than one hectare (2.5 acres) and the length of the flaming edge is kept to less than 30 metres (100 feet)
Choose a safe site
Keep burning piles at least 2 metres from other flammable material so the fire doesn’t escape by running along the ground away from the pile or burn area
if burning an area of grass or leaves, make sure the area is surrounded by a fire-proof boundary, such as a road, wet ditch or ploughed ground
Stay with your fire
If you start a fire outdoors, you must tend the fire, keep it under control, and extinguish it before leaving the site
a responsible person must be present to tend the fire at all times, even if it is contained in an incinerator
keep adequate tools and water on hand to control the fire if it begins to spread
Please Exercise Caution While Burning!
FIRE BAN IS CURRENTLY IN EFFECT

Thanks for your cooperation.
Have a great and safe Victoria Day Weekend!
