THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF COCHRANE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - FIRE BAN
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
FIRE BAN – Cochrane, ON
The Cochrane Fire Department wishes to inform all residents of Cochrane that there is a fire ban within the urban and suburban part of Cochrane until further notice.
Our resources during the Covid-19 pandemic are limited and to avoid any loss to life or property, the department has decided to postpone any issuance of fire permits or to permit anyone from using their fire pits in their backyards.
This order does not affect anyone outside the Town of Cochrane boundaries, for any inquiries for anyone living outside the boundaries please consult with the MNRF through their website.
These measures are effective as of April 1, 2020 and will be reviewed May 31, 2020.
We further encourage everyone to follow the directive of social distancing and to follow any other directives for fire through the MNRF website: https://www.ontario.ca/page/outdoor-fire-restrictions
