Fire Ban

August 8, 2014

Under the authority of the Vulcan County Fire Ban Bylaw #2013-012,

Vulcan County has enacted a Partial Fire Ban in accordance with Section 13.2 of the fire ban by-law on all open fires in the County with the following exceptions:

• fires which are contained in a cooking appliance or

• campfires in designated fire sites within campgrounds.

All active Fire Permits are canceled. No new Fire Permits will be issued until further notice.

• When a fire ban is in effect, any person who contravenes the fire ban may be subject to the fines established within this by-law.

Due to the dry conditions we ask everyone to be extremely careful in the outdoors. We thank you in advance for your co-operation and assistance during this ban.

Please report any smoke sightings or fires immediately to 911.
