Burn Ban Effective Tues. July 7, 2020

Municipality of Trent Lakes
Burn Ban
Public Notice
Effective July 7, 2020

Due to current dry weather conditions coupled with the continued
forecast of extreme temperatures with no appreciable rain in the
near future, the Municipality of Trent Lakes has issued an
immediate ban on all open air burning. This ban suspends
all approved Open Air Burning Permits.

This ban includes the following and will remain in effect until
further notice to ensure public safety:
• burning of clean wood and brush
• outdoor campfires
• all outdoor wood burning appliances
• fireworks

Citizens are further reminded that all smokers’ materials should
be fully extinguished before being discarded in proper noncombustible containers.

Trent Lakes Fire Rescue would like to thank all citizens for their
anticipated co-operation during this ban. We would also like to
remind citizens that any person found to be conducting open air
burning in contravention of the ban, is guilty of an offence and
subject to charges being filed in Provincial Offences Court.

We will continue to monitor the weather conditions and issue a
subsequent release when the open air burning ban is
lifted. Citizens may also check www.trentlakes.ca for information
on when the ban will be lifted.Burn Ban
