Champlain Township amends full fire ban to permit camp fires and burning in a container

Champlain Township has amended its full fire ban on open air fires to allow camp fires and burning in a container. The full fire ban was enacted last week.

In order to ensure public safety and well-being during the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, the Township of Champlain issued a ban on open air fires in the township and reminds everyone it will not be issuing fire permits until further notice, but said that camp fire and burning in a container will be permitted.

The move aims to reduce the number of preventable human-caused fires and to limit non-essential calls for service during the COVID-19 outbreak to help ensure that staff is available and healthy when emergencies occur.

A notice was published on the township’s website on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.
