Arnprior Fire Department wishes to remind everyone that the prolonged wave of
extreme heat and lack of rain has caused very dry conditions. These dry
conditions increase the potential for fires to start and grow rapidly making it
highly imperative that smoking materials be discarded safely. Discarding
cigarette butts in planter boxes or off the side of your deck can result in a large,
destructive fire not only on your property but on your neighbors’ properties as
Although there is not a burn ban in effect in Arnprior there are strict parameters
that must be met and adhered to under the open air burning By-law No. 3058-78
and an open air burning permit is mandatory. To learn more about obtaining an
open air burning permit please visit www.arnprior.ca/arnprior-fire-department.
Help keep our Town safe by not burning at all at this time and discarding your
smoking materials safely.
