The primary mission statement of the Township of Malahide Fire & Emergency Services Department is to provide a range of programs to protect the lives and property of the inhabitants of the Township of Malahide from the adverse effects of fires or exposure to dangerous conditions created by man or nature.
Due to the recent close calls in Malahide, and not so close calls in area municipalities along with the dry conditions and prospects of rain at a minimum, Malahide is placing a burn ban into effect until environmental conditions change. Environment Canada has also issued an extreme air quality warning in Elgin for the next couple of days that can only be exacerbated by unnecessary burning. Campfires for the purpose of cooking or heating are the ONLY exceptions. These campfires MUST be no greater than 24" in diameter, in a non-combustible container, and attended at all times with a source of extinguishment nearby.
