Fire Advisory - April 20, 2022

From the County of Vulcan on April 20, 2022:

"Under the Authority of the Vulcan County Fire Services Bylaw #2017-003, Vulcan County has canceled the Fire Restriction and enacted a Fire Advisory.

We will continue to monitor moisture levels and fire risk throughout the County, and may update the status as needed. Fire permits will be issued for Class1 (10x10x5 and under) and Class2 (10x10x5 and over) fires but may be canceled at any time with little to no notice.

Vulcan County will ask citizens to use extra caution and be extra vigilant when burning while the Advisory is in effect. Soaking the area adjacent to the open fire pits with water is recommended. Citizens are also reminded that obtaining a fire permit is mandatory at all times and permits are at no cost. The Burn Permits can be applied for on the County website.

Vulcan County asks that if there is any burning needed to be done, to please burn it sooner than later. It is anticipated that with the upcoming weather and lack of moisture in the forecast, a restriction or full-out ban could be implemented. If a Fire Ban or Restriction is imposed, you must immediately and fully extinguish your fire, all existing permits will become void and no new permits will be issued. 

The advisory will remain in effect until further notice."
