Fire Chief bans fires above 2 meters x 2 meters
In the interest of our community and first responders a burn ban has been put in place by Fire Chief Rick Richardson for any fires larger than 2m x 2m. No Open-Air Burn Notifications will be issued until further notice.
This ban aims to reduce the risk of Fire in the Township and support our local emergency responders during the current Emergency Order from the Province of Ontario. Municipal bylaws have set fines and surcharges for those found to be in violation of the ban.
We are aware these decisions may be an inconvenience for some, however the health and safety of the residents of the Township of Mapleton and our emergency responders are our top priorities and we believe these measures are necessary.
