No Fires Fire ban copyNotice Date: July 10, 2018

Subject: Fire Ban

Townships of: Addington Highlands and North Frontenac

Areas affected: Kaladar, Northbrook, Bon Echo, Plevna, Ompah, Denbigh, Flinton and surrounding area.

On July 10, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. a Total Fire Ban was implemented due to the dry conditions, creating extreme fire conditions in the Townships of Addington Highlands and North Frontenac. Therefore no open fires will be permitted until the potential for Forest Fires decreases.

While the Townships have experienced some periods of rain, no significant accumulations have taken place. This has contributed to a high potential for Forest Fires.
“Fire Ban” means a total fire ban and shall prohibit; burning of debris, burning in an outdoor incinerator, chimineas, Fireworks displays, campfires of any type, and charcoal installations. NOTE during a fire ban a BBQ or Hibachis (charcoal installation) may be used provided the installation is used within 100 meters of a permanent structure used as a dwelling that you occupy, or in an organized campground, is at least 2 meters from any flammable material and the ashes and coals produced are completely extinguished and safely disposed of.
