From March 15 – October 15, you must check https://novascotia.ca/burnsafe/ daily to find out whether it is safe to have a fire. This website is updated every day at 2 pm. All domestic brush burning and campfires must adhere to daily Nova Scotia burning restrictions as indicated on the burnsafe website.
If the website indicates that it is safe to burn, the Fire Chief recommends that you make a call to BTIERA’s duty phone just to let them know your burn plans. This is especially true for residents who live in the interior or more remote parts of the island. The number is 902-277-1379.
If you see smoke and suspect that it is an uncontrolled fire call 911.
