Fire Prevention

COVID-19 Update May 15, 2020

Earlier this month, City Council amended the Fireworks By-Law (2011 -190) to remove both Victoria Day and Canada Day as permitted days for 2020. The decision to ban fireworks on Victoria Day and July 1, 2020, helps discourage the potential for large social gatherings.

While campfires, chiminea fireplaces, crop residue fires, and other types of outdoor burning are permitted, please be safe and cautious around any outdoor fires, and never leave a fire unattended.

Fire Prevention Week | October 4 - 10, 2020

This year's Fire Prevention Week (FPW) theme, "Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!" is aimed at educating everyone about the simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them, safe in the kitchen.

The kitchen is not a play area. Keep kids out of the kitchen when you're cooking.

The number one cause of cooking fires in Ontario is unattended cooking - when pots and pans are left cooking unattended on the stove. 

All too often people get distracted by the telephone, the TV, or they simply forgot about their cooking, or fell asleep.

Always stay in the kitchen while cooking, especially if you are cooking with oil or at high temperatures. If you must leave the kitchen while cooking, turn off the stove.


Greater Sudbury Fire Services provides fire prevention information, services and programs. We conduct fire inspections, resolve fire safety concerns, enforce the Ontario Fire Code and specific municipal by-laws, issue permits, and review and approve construction plans for fire safety issues.
