Open Air Burning

The Aylmer Fire Department has had to respond to several unauthorized burning complaints over the years. These calls cause the volunteers to leave their places of employment to attend the scene of illegal burning. This is a growing concern as the firefighters are away from their work for what is usually a nuisance call. This ties up the Departments Emergency Vehicles when they may be needed to respond to a real emergency.

The Ontario Fire Code "Open Air Burning" states "Open Air Burning shall not be permitted unless approved, or unless such burning consists of a small, confined fire, supervised at all times, and used to cook food on a grill or a barbecue."

Persons that burn without approval from the Chief Fire Official and do not comply with the above mentioned fire code reference are guilty of an offence. An offence for contravention of the fire code can result in a fine of not more than $ 25,000 or imprisonment for a term of not more than one year, or both.

Please respect your neighbours, the environment and the volunteer firefighters by not burning illegally.
