The SOPFEU fire danger rating is a good guideline to follow! The appropriate behaviour to adopt for each level of fire danger is laid out below.

For more information, visit the SOPFEU's website: https://sopfeu.qc.ca/en/


What is an “open-air fire”?

Any fire burning freely or that can freely spread. Examples of open-air fires are fireworks and flame and spark producing tools (such as welding tools).

The following are not considered to be an open fire: Propane or ethanol fireplaces. These facilities may be used in the event of a ban.

Fires burning in facilities intended for this purpose and equipped with spark arrestor screens, such as stoves, fireplaces, and metal containers, are not considered to be open-air fires. In order to comply with prevailing standards, spark arrestor openings must be no wider than 1 centimetre.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE from your Fire Department and the SOPFEU

Caution Alert - Early spring provides opportunity for wildfires
Source : www.sopfeu.qc.ca
In this early spring, the Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) is issuing a call for caution to the population over the next few days. A high pressure system will settle over Quebec bringing several days of sunshine and dry weather, which could increase temperatures by 10 to 20 degrees Celsius above the seasonal norm. In this regard, the fire danger currently ranges from "high" to "extreme", as the increase in temperatures, the lack of precipitation and the very low humidity levels favour the outbreak of brush and forest fires.

SOPFEU reminds us that in early spring, the greenery is not yet present, making dead grasses highly flammable. The last winter received less accumulation than normal, and the soil is drier. With the snow cover gone in many areas, it only takes a few hours of sunshine and a little wind to dry out the brush and increase the fire danger.


https://sopfeu.qc.ca/en/

Next week, the Municipality of the Township of Wentworth will proceed with the reinstallation of the fire prevention signs located at the entry points of the territory.

In the meantime, please consult the SOPFEU (www.sopfeu.qc.ca) or our website (www.wentworth.ca) to know the current level of fire risk. For any emergency, please call 9-1-1.
