Please note that any emergency response from our First Responder will result in a public service charge ($1,000 to $2,400 range) that will be paid by the municipality first and then charged back to the property, once the site investigations are completed - make sure you have appropriate insurance which covers these type of costs - the charge will be added to your property taxes if it remains unpaid after 30 days. 

  1. Home Fires
  2. Structure Fires
  3. Internal Fires
  4. Carbon Monoxide Alarms
  5. Smoke Alarms (no fire detection)
  6. Other alarms that relate to property security (neighbours)

Make sure any tenants or rentals are aware of this - the responsibility is on occupants, tenants and owners to make sure they monitor and douse all back yard fires (only pits please), comply with fire ban regulations and set backs, and execute responsible fire burn actions. 

NO FIRES are allowed outside the confines of your fire pit, which must comply with the appropriate set backs and dousing regulations.


Water, Stir, Water, Stir, Water - NO EXCEPTIONS.
