UNIACKE & DISTRICT VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT

HELLO MOUNT UNIACKE!

The Uniacke and District Volunteer Fire Department wants to remind everyone that March 15th was the start of the Wildfire Risk Season. With that being said, from now until October 15, 2024, you must check before you burn. You can do so by going to https://novascotia.ca/burnsafe/ and check when you are allowed to burn. Burning restrictions are updated at 2:00pm daily, therefore, burning is not allowed between 8:00am and 2:00pm.

If the map in your county is red, burning is not allowed. If it is yellow, burning is only allowed between 7:00pm and 8:00am. If it is green, burning is allowed between 2:00pm and 8:00am. Fires must remain 1x2 meters in size. With that in mind, let's have a safe and wildfire free summer!

REMEMBER - CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN. ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES.
