    RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR FIRE PIT USE

    Conduct your camp fire by following the Rules and Regulations as stated below.

    Failure to follow these regulations may result in the Fire Pit being closed.

    If someone else has the fire pit reserved, please contact them to confirm their attendance. See Section Contacts to determine who you need to speak to.

    Fire pit reservations can be made at any time.

    In general, the Stittsville fire pit can only be booked by a Stittsville Scout and Guiding group. Other Scouting affiliated groups should contact commissioner@stittsvillescouts.org

    The fire pit is considered a regular meeting spot for Stittsville Scouts. This means that the “Outdoor activity Permission” form is NOT required.


     

    RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR FIRE PIT USE

    On the evening of the Campfire the leader in charge must do the following:

    BEFORE THE CAMPFIRE

    • Call the Local Fire Department at 580-2880 .. the automated system will inform whether there is a burn ban in effect.

    IF THERE IS A BURN BAN IN EFFECT, NO FIRE CAN BE LIT

    • Sections provide fire materials, water to extinguish the fire and implements to manage the fire (shovel)
    • The wood in the fire pit area is provided at Stittsville expense. Visiting Groups are ask to provide their own wood.
