Fire Ban Lifted as of July 24th 2020
Our Fire Chiefs are lifting the Fire Ban as of Friday, July 24th 2020.

Please remember to follow regulations as set out in our Fires and Open Air Burning Bylaw (102-2013), and continue to respect health guidelines in relation to COVID-19.

Apply for a Fire Permit
Fire permits are not required for recreational/cooking fires. Fire permits are required for all other Open Air Fires, including Farm/Rural Open Air Fires.

At this time, you may apply for a fire permit by contacting our Public Safety & Enforcement Department at 613-443-3066 or by email at bylaws.reglements@russell.ca Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm. Applications for fire permits must be submitted 24 hours prior to open air burning.

Payment Options for Fire Permits
Payment for fire permits can be made using the secure drop box at the front door of Town Hall, or by regular mail to 717 Notre Dame Street in Embrun. Ensure your cheque or cash is in an envelope labelled for the Public Safety and Enforcement Department. The Township can also issue an invoice for your fire permit. Fire permits are $25 each.

History
The Township put into effect a Township-wide fire ban on July 7th, 2020. This was due to the dry weather we have been experiencing this summer.
