The Lappe Fire Department is always continuing to advance our skills to serve the community in our best way. We are dedicated towards helping protect our homes and community and focus not only on active training, but, also fire prevention.

If you live in Northwestern, Northern or Central Ontario, you must follow certain rules to have an outdoor fire. By law, you require a fire permit to burn wood, brush, leaves and grass during the fire season (April 1 – October 31) unless you follow all the rules outlined below and:

  • Conditions allow it to burn safely until extinguished
  • You take all necessary steps to tend, control and extinguish the fire
  • You are not having an open fire in a restricted fire zone

If you do not burn safely or burn material without a permit when one is needed, you can be fined and held responsible for the cost of putting out the fire and for any damage incurred. Please visit www.ontario.ca/page/wildfire-protection for more information.
