Partial burn ban lifted

APRIL 23 – The partial burn ban has been lifted after all criteria have been met for open air burning.

 

APRIL 17 – The County has moved to a partial burn ban, from a full ban throughout the municipality.

Under a partial burn ban, burning is restricted to a container with a screened top or a small campfire.

Propane fueled appliances such as barbecues and fire tables are exempted from the Open-Air Burning bylaw.

A burn permit is required for all open air burning.
The fire chief evaluates weather and ground conditions to determine the necessity of a burn ban. When conditions improve, the ban will be updated.
The burn status can be checked anytime by calling 1.833.376.1011 or by visiting the County website.
For more information, contact Fire Dispatch, Prince Edward County at 613.476.2345 or fire@pecounty.on.ca.
To report a complaint about illegal burning, call 613-476-2345 immediately at the time of your complaint. If your concern is an emergency, dial 911

APRIL 12: As of April 12, Prince Edward County Fire & Rescue (PECFR) is restricting all burning in the municipality.

The restriction is due to high winds and dry conditions in the forecast over the next several days. The burn ban will remain in effect until PECFR has determined that the fire risk level is acceptable.

The burn ban restricts all fires including campfires, burn barrels, chimeneas, brush piles and yard waste.

Cooking devices that are designed to cook food with wood pellets or charcoal, such as smokers or grills, are permitted for use. Any cooking devices, outdoor fireplaces and fuel fired appliances that use propane or natural gas are also exempt from the burn ban.

All burn permits have been placed under restriction and the electronic system will not permit anyone to activate their permit for burning.
