The Chippewas of Nawash Fire Department and the Chief and Council would like to thank the community for their cooperation in refraining from having fires during the Covid-19 crisis. Although we are not out of the woods yet, with respect to the pandemic, we are confident enough in our response that we are going to allow sacred fires, fires for cooking and warmth, and burning barrels.
For safety, ensure that all fires are contained and that you have water or sand nearby to extinguish the fire after you are done. We ask that you CONTINUE TO REFRAIN from having grass fires and bonfires.
Please be mindful of the ongoing social distancing measures. Lifting the fire ban does not mean that we should be gathering with people outside our households, or having friends over to socialize around the fire. All residents are asked to maintain their social distance and not abuse the partial lifting of the fire ban.
We thank you for your patience and support.
