County burn ban lifted

Fire Chief Robert Rutter has lifted the burn ban following significant rainfall, and more rain in the forecast.

Residents burning brush are reminded to monitor it at all times and have a means of fire control available.

To have a fire in Prince Edward County, you must have a current permit and activate it every day that you are having a fire. A burn permit is required for all open air burning. Burn permits cost $20 and expire at the end of the calendar year (Dec. 31, 2020).

Property owners can now visit the County website to purchase a burn permit for the 2020 season. Before going online to pay for your permit, you will require a burn permit number. 2019 burn permit holders can use their previous number. Call 613.476.2602 if you require assistance retrieving your 2019 number.

If you are purchasing a burn permit for the first time, call 613.476.2602 to be issued a permit number.

Residents can also apply for an annual burn permit by visiting Fire Station 1 at 8 McDonald Drive in Picton or Shire Hall at 332 Picton Main Street.

The burn status can be checked anytime by calling 613.476.7232 or 613.962.3497 or by visiting the County website.
