Citizens are further reminded that all smokers’ materials should be fully extinguished before being discarded in proper non-combustible containers.
The Trent Lakes fire department would like to thank all citizens for their anticipated co-operation during this ban. We would also like to remind citizens that any person found to be conducting open air burning in contravention of the ban, is guilty of an offence and subject to charges being filed in Provincial Offences Court.
