Fire permits

Do you know about the fire danger rating?

Every day and for each region, starting in the Spring, the Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) issues a fire danger rating.  We invite you to consult the website https://sopfeu.qc.ca/ and obtain authorization from the municipality before lighting an open fire by calling 819-842-2977.

Fire danger rating, in short :
Bas (blue) – open fires authorized
Modéré (green) – open fires authorized
Élevé (yellow) – open fires not authorized

Très élevé (orange) – open fires not authorized
Extrême (red) – open fires not authorized

Fireplace with a spark arrester
If you have a fireplace with a spark arrester (with maximum openings of 1 cm by 1 cm), placed on a paving stone or on an open ground of clay or gravel, you can continue to enjoy the warmth of a good fire, even when there is a ban on open fires.
