Effective 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, 2016, a total outdoor fire ban is in effect in the Town of Caledon. The ban is in effect until further notice.
The lack of precipitation and extremely dry conditions have combined to the point where firefighting operations on grass, brush, bush and outdoor fires could be extremely dangerous for firefighters and may place properties at a high risk of loss.
The ban is issued pursuant to the Fire Protection and Prevention Act and the Ontario Fire Code (O.reg 213/07). Contravention could result in a minimum fine of $300.00 and a minimum invoice of $691.00 per fire truck per hour for all firefighting costs.
Caledon Fire and Emergency Services appreciate your efforts to prevent, reduce and eliminate these needless fire incidents.
