Spring Fire Safety Reminder regarding Open Air Burning
The Ramara Fire and Rescue Services would like to remind our citizens that as the days get warmer and spring yard clean up is in the air, please be extremely mindful of your outdoor leaf burning and yard waste fires.
Though there may be snow in spots and water in the ditches, the dead standing grass from summers past is extremely dry and tinder. All burns must be closely supervised and extinguishing means close at hand.
Please review the municipality's Open Air Burning Policy to fully understand what constitutes a permissible open air burn.
