As the warmer weather approaches and with many people beginning to enjoy outdoor activities, Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services has announced they are extending the expiry date of all recreational fire permits purchased from January 1 to May 12, 2020.
“All recreational fire permits purchased during this time will be valid until June 1, 2021,” fire officials said in a press release.
“This extension of time is being granted due to the fire ban that was imposed last year from April 1 to May 12, 2020.”

“While campfires can be very relaxing events, we would like to remind everyone to continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines,” fire officials added.
