RESTRICTED FIRE ZONE - TOTAL FIRE BAN - Effective Immediately (April 1, 2020) (12:30 p.m. - CST): The Chief Fire Official has declared a Restricted Fire Zone - Total Fire Ban for the Townships of Alberton, Chapple, Emo and La Vallee. This ban applies to all open-air fires including agricultural burns, brush piles, burn barrels, campfires, chimeneas, cooking fires, consumer fireworks, incinerators and other types of outdoor burning, but does not including cooking appliances with a mechanical shutoff, i.e. propane or natural gas cooking equipment.
Due to concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the need for social distancing and to assist the health, safety and well-being of our firefighters, this open-air burn ban is being implemented as a precautionary measure to avoid any additional strain or exposure risk on our fire services at this time.
We are committed to providing and maintaining emergency response within our communities and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we cope with this uncertain and unprecedented situation.
If you have any questions please contact the Emo Municipal Office.
