  1. Open fires are not permitted in the Town of Riverview at any time.
  2. Fire Pits cannot be used within town limits when our region is highlighted in Red.
  3. Fire Pits can only be used in town when the map for our area is green or yellow (within the restrictions applied).
  4. The Town of Riverview would like to remind residents that families should only socialise within their two-family “bubble” and should not invite neighbours, friends and extended family members not in their “bubble” to join you around the fire pit.
  5. Please remember to respect your neighbours by keeping the noise levels to a minimum and only burn clean dry wood.
