Fire Pit Safety

  • Closely supervise all outdoor fires.
  • Make sure the fire is out before leaving.
  • Supervise children around any fire outdoors, including campfires, fire pits, chimneys, and outdoor fireplaces.
  • Recreational fires such as one in a fire pit, need to be at  least 3 meters away from anything that can burn.
  • Avoid burning on  windy, dry days. When conditions are windy or dry, it is easy for open  burning to spread out of control.
  • Where outdoor burning is allowed, never  use gasoline or other flammable or combustible liquids.
  • When burning, have a hose, bucket of water, or shovel and dirt or sand nearby to extinguish the fire.
