In response to the amended guidelines provided by the Provincial government on April 17, 2021, the South Frontenac township has reopened some recreational facilities and previously closed waste disposal sites for public use.

The Loughborough and Portland Waste Disposal sites re-opened on their regular scheduled days and times.

Also, effective Wednesday, April 21, 2021, the following recreational facilities reopened for public use:

Play structures, swings, slides and climbers. Centennial Park’s Off-leash dog park

Play structures and the Township’s dog park can be used by residents and their children provided a physical distance of at least two metres from others outside their household is maintained (this does not apply to members of one other household who live alone, or a caregiver for any member of either household).

Total Fire Ban Lifted in South Frontenac

Effective Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 8:00 am the total fire ban was lifted in the Township of South Frontenac.

“I would like to thank the residents of South Frontenac for complying with the ‘Total Fire Ban’ that was put in place on April 9th, 2021, for the safety of our community, our properties, and our SFFR firefighters,” said Fire Chief Darcy Knott, Director of Fire and Emergency Services for the Township. “The combination of wet weather conditions and greening vegetation presents less of a risk for burning than just a few weeks ago.”

Chief Knott explained, “With the release of the fire ban, I urge residents to burn only when conditions are appropriate, have adequate means to stop the spread of fire if it becomes out of control, and as always … Think Safe and Be Safe!”
