With spring at our doorstep, your Fire Department would like to remind you of the regulations for open-air fires.
No fire is allowed when winds exceed 15km/h or when the flammability index is rated «very high » by Forest Fire Protection Society « SOPFEU ». The responsibility to check for these conditions falls under the responsibility of the person responsible for the fire. SOPFFEU is considered as the reference organization and can be contacted at 1-800 567-1206 or at sopfeu.qc.ca.
It is prohibited to burn grass, leaves, hay or straw, trash, construction waste, petroleum-based products and any other item deemed to be pollutant. Residents with outdoor fires should also, as a courtesy to neighbors, monitor the smoke that emerges - if it is going towards the neighbors, you should perhaps postpone your fire until the wind is favorable.
The person in charge of the fire assumes his ordinary responsibilities, in the case where disbursements, damages or pursuits result from the fire thus lit.
Consult our branches recycling dates, so you can go home with mulch!
