Will you be completing clean up of brush and woody debris this fall?

Did you know that: Under the Forest Fires Prevention Act, the only material that can be burnt without a fire permit is grass, wood, brush or wood by-products.

Always consider chipping or composting first over burning brush or grass.

If you must burn, make sure you know the rules for outdoor fires and follow safe practices.

If you live within a municipality, contact your local municipal office or fire department before burning.
