Full burn ban in effect. Prince Edward County Fire & Rescue (PECFR) is restricting all burning in the municipality due to high winds.
- Effective immediately, there is a complete burn ban in effect.
- 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 restriction is due to high winds and dry conditions in the forecast over the next several days. 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 pec.burnpermits.com.
