A total burn ban is in place in Mississippi Mills as of March 25, 2024.

In a media release, the municipality says that The Mississippi Mills Fire Department (MMFD) has changed the Municipality’s open air burning status to a Level 5 – Total Burn Ban due to the current dry conditions.

“This will remain in effect until further notice,” the release states.

All open air fires are prohibited during a fire ban, even for those who have an open air fire permit. This ban applies to all types of burning, including campfires and fireworks.

People are also asked to “use extreme caution” when discarding cigarettes.

Questions regarding the ban or status of a burn permit may be directed to the MMFD by calling 613-256-2064 ext. 703, or 613-256-2064 and select Option 7.
