There is currently a Level One Fire Ban in effect for the Township of South Frontenac. 

Please be advised that effective Friday, June 18, 2021 at 12:00 pm, the total fire ban will be downgraded to a Level One fire ban for the Township of South Frontenac.

A Level One fire ban restricts open air burning for the purposes of burning grass, brush, or other combustible materials, but permits campfires and cooking fires as defined in the By-law 2012-68.

Your cooperation will help protect our citizens and property, and is sincerely appreciated. 

Additional Information:

A burning ban can be put in place during the "Fire Season" which is the period from the 1st day of April to the 31st day of October in each year, pending weather conditions as per the By-law, however the Director of Fire and Emergency Services  has the authority to put a full burning ban in place at any time. 

The guidelines for burning are found in By-law 2012-68. Any questions concerning the by-law should be directed to the Fire Chief  Darcy Knott at 613-376-3027 Ext 2234.
