Fire Ban & Fireworks

This summer has been off to a smoky start. Smoke from wildfires in Quebec is causing hazy conditions while dry weather conditions expose us to our own wildfire risks. We encourage our members to do everything possible to manage these risks while enjoying summer by the lake.

As of June 1st, Haliburton County has issued a complete fire ban that includes fireworks (

Regardless of the fire ban, the RLCA encourages its members to continue to avoid using fireworks to protect our lakes, wildlife, pets, and neighbours. Here, we share a recent article from The Conversation that details some of the harmful impacts of fireworks.

If fires should come to our area, watch out for waterbombers. Remember that waterbombers need room to scoop water from lakes. Boaters who venture too close can obstruct firefighting efforts and create a dangerous situation for themselves and pilots. 

Waterbombers will not scoop from a lake or river if encroaching watercraft pose a safety hazard. Help fight wildland fires by staying clear of waterbombers while out on the water. Download an information sheet about waterbombers and share this with others!
