What is Banned During a Fire Ban?
A fire ban can restrict any of these regulated activities:
• Open burning ("open burning" refers to controlled burns subject to conditions set in a Fire Permit) in non-residential areas.
• Fireworks
• Firepits and cooking stoves in parks
• Backyard firepits
• Burn barrels
In most cases, a fire ban will only restrict open burning and fireworks. If conditions require, a ban may also restrict the use of firepits and cooking stoves in parks. Backyard firepits will only be banned when the fire hazard is extreme throughout the M.D.
