Obviously, if an open fire ban is in effect, an outside fire will not be permitted even if a burning permit has been issued. So, before making an outside fire, make it a habit to consult the SOPFEU website to know the risk of fire.
During an outdoor fire, certain safety measures must always be followed:
- An adult must always be nearby.
- Never use an accelerant.
- Never burn tires or plastic.
- Ensure that the fire is completely extinguished before leaving.
