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
The Township of Schreiber will NOT be issuing any fire permits until after the fire ban has been lifted.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the municipal office.
Thanks for your cooperation.
Have a great and safe Victoria Day Weekend!

The Township of Schreiber would like to thank everyone who came out to attend our Town Hall Meeting on Monday May 17, 2017. The purpose of this meeting was to present the Community Revitalization Project plans, timelines, and funding status. This is an exciting time for our community: The Community Revitalization Plan presented is NOT another study; it is the plan which will be implemented in the near future. The project has received sufficient funding to begin the design and engineering phase. Following successful design and engineering, the project will need to get through one more stage of grant lobbying prior to build. For anyone who missed the Town Hall Meeting, the powerpoint presentation is available to view here. We look forward to seeing this project come to life!
The Township of Schreiber Economic Development Department will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Monday May 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the Schreiber Municipal Complex Room 124.
