Fire Ban Information

When a Full Fire Ban is not in effect, the Summer Village of South View keeps a partial fire ban on year-round to control the way fires are maintained and to protect the Summer Village and the residents.  Always check the fire ban signs at the entrances to the Summer Village. 

A FULL FIRE BAN means no fire of any kind, whether they require a permit or not, may be ignited within the Summer Village of South View and any existing fires must be extinguished immediately.  Please be vigilant concerning this.  

A PARTIAL FIRE BAN means all fires must be confined within a non-combustible structure, container or barrel with openings covered with a heavy gauge metal screen having a mesh size not larger than twelve (12) millimeters and which is used for the purpose of cooking or burning refuse.
