Burn ban lifted

publisher Apr 23, 2020 - 9:37am

The Township of North Glengarry has lifted the total burn ban which went into effect April 3.

The restriction was imposed to protect fire department staff during the COVID-19 pandemic and the approaching dry season.

North Glengarry Fire Chief Matthew Roy has been closely monitoring the situation and decided this week to lift the edict.

"We would like to thank our residents for supporting our local firefighters during the burn ban. We recognize that many of you are eager to resume burning for both agricultural and recreational purposes. We remind residents that any and all Open Air fires require burn permits and that our residents must follow all of the rules that accompany their burn permit. We need your help to keep our community safe," he said.

Residents who had previously received their burn permits can now burn, provided that they are following the conditions set forth within the Township's Burn By-Law. This includes refraining from all fires when conditions are not favourable, such as on windy days when the wind velocity is greater than 15 kilometres per hour.

All Open Air burns must be monitored at all times; and it is never permitted to burn noxious materials, such as tires, plastics, garbage or construction materials.

Burn permits are available online at the Township of North Glengarry's website at www.northglengarry.ca or through the direct link at https://northglengarry.burnpermits.com/. Burn permits take about 48 hours to process and are currently only available online. For assistance with your permit, call the Fire Department Administrator at 613-525-1110 ext. 200 or email fireadmin@northglengarry.ca

It is illegal to have an open air fire without a burn permit. Offenders may face fines.
