The Otter Point Volunteer Fire Department has just updated their website, to indicate that their fire danger rating is now HIGH.
A “High” fire danger rating means “Forest fuels are very dry and the fire risk is serious. New fires may start easily, burn vigorously, and challenge fire suppression efforts. Extreme caution must be used in any forest activities. Open burning and industrial activities may be restricted.”
According to the information posted on the Otter Point Volunteer Fire Department website (which they keep very current!):
- Open burning is NOT permitted
- Campfires and incinerators are OK
- High Risk Activities eg: Machinery, chain saws etc ok.
Please visit them online if you are ever in doubt.
