Full burn ban lifted

UPDATE MARCH 27: Fire Chief Chad Brown has lifted the full burn ban after the winds have become light enough to allow open air burning.

MARCH 25: Prince Edward County Fire & Rescue (PECFR) is restricting all burning in the municipality with a burn ban in effect March 25 due to a high wind warning today with winds in excess of 50 km/h.

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.

The burn ban will remain in effect until PECFR has determined that the fire risk level is acceptable.

Any questions regarding the burn ban or the status of a burn permit may be directed to PECFR by calling 613.476.2345 or visiting
