July 29, 2016
The Township of Douro-Dummer Chief Fire Official has declared an open air fire ban, effective immediately.
Due to the continued dry conditions in the Township of Douro-Dummer, as well as data from the Wildland Fire Information System, the Township is enabling a fire ban through By-law 2015-05. No open air burning will be allowed, with the exception of campgrounds as defined within the By-law. These campgrounds must meet the requirements set out in the By-law if they choose to utilize the exemption.
Another factor for enacting this fire ban, is that some water sources are no longer available which could lead to shuttling water from further distances, delaying extinguishment.
“We hope that conditions change and we can all enjoy the recreational fires that memories are made from, but until that time please be responsible with all ignition sources, including cigarettes that have already caused fires along the side of roadways” says Fire Chief Chuck Pedersen
Signs will be posted at most major intersections within the Township and information is available on our website at wwww.dourodummer.on.ca
Enforcement of set fires during a fire ban may result in a $500 penalty as well as response to extinguish such fires can be charged at $450 per fire apparatus.
