Fire Chief Calls for Ban on Open Fires

Fire Chief Nick Saunders, with the support of the Chief and Council, asks that all residents of Neyaashiinigmiing refrain from starting open fires of any kind, including brush-burning, campfires, bonfires, and cook-outs. The fire department is supporting the community in many different ways during the pandemic crisis, in addition to their primary duties as front-line responders. The Fire Chief, Chief and Council want to avoid overloading the volunteer firefighters, who are so critical to the community’s pandemic response, with unnecessary fire calls until the crisis has passed. The Fire Department thanks all residents for their patience and cooperation.
