Notice Date:           July 9, 2020

Townships of:       Addington Highlands and North Frontenac

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

The forest fire danger risk is currently at the low end of EXTREME.   With the small amount of precipitation we received this past Tuesday night combined with the forecasted precipitation for this weekend a fire ban has not been initiated at this time.   

Camp fires are still permitted. Please keep camp fires small (less than 1m) with all combustibles (such as vegetation, sticks, leaves, etc.) kept well back from them and only build your camp fire on mineral soil (gravel, sand) or bare rock.  Be sure to soak with water to put out, stir and soak again.

While burning of brush piles less than 2m in diameter is still permitted after 7pm and must be out cold by 7am we ask that if at all possible you put off burning it until conditions improve. 

Chief Cuddy and Chief Korhonen continue to monitor fire danger conditions daily and will provide updates as needed.

 

Thanks to everyone for helping us to stay fire safe.
