Full burn ban in effect Nov. 21

The County is under a full burn ban throughout the municipality due to the projected wind speeds Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Under a full burn ban, all fires including campfires, burn barrels, chimeneas, brush piles and yard waste are restricted.

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.

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.
