Total Fire Ban Lifted

The total fire ban that was enacted in Haliburton County on June 1 has been lifted as of July 12. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has also removed its Restricted Fire Zone for the area. Seasonal burning regulations continue to apply, meaning no outdoor burning between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. without a permit. Please continue to use caution when burning.

No Daytime Burning

The fire season is April 1st to October 31st. During this time period, daytime (7 am to 7 pm) burning of brush, grass, etc. is prohibited. You may burn brush and leaves without a permit between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m (except when a burning ban is in place). If you wish to do this, you must meet the conditions listed at Failure to meet these conditions could lead to fines and the costs for the Fire Department to attend and extinguish your fire.

The only exception to this regulation is a Daily Burn Permit for Open Air Fires for special daytime burning. Residents and/or Contractors may apply for this permit by completing a Daily Burn Permit for Open Air Fires application and delivering it to the Township Office.
