Burning Ban takes effect on 3/27/2020
In order to protect the health and safety of the citizens of Wisconsin and the Chippewa Fire District, we are joining with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in suspending all burning permits and banning all but warming and cooking fires until further notice. Therefore, all burning in barrels, piles on the ground and grass or wooded areas in the Chippewa Fire District coverage area is prohibited until further notice.
Eliminating ignition sources on the landscape reduces wildfire risk, smoke for vulnerable populations and person-to-person contact. Emergency responders and firefighters have an increased need to take pandemic precautions, so they remain available to continue to protect the public from wildfires and reduce the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Remember to report fires and medical emergencies by dialing 911 immediately.
The ban includes the Towns of Hallie, Howard, Lafayette and Wheaton and the Village of Lake Hallie.
Violations shall result in paying for the cost of suppressing the fire.
