Map of Restricted Fire Zones in Ontario

Note: A "Restricted Fire Zone" (RFZ) is an Order made by the Minister of Natural Resources, under the Forest Fires Prevention Act, that restricts the use of open fires in a specific area of the province. It is used when the fire hazard is extreme and/or when fire fighting resources are stretched to capacity. RFZ Orders are strictly enforced.

Random Weather Facts

The wind chill temperature is what the temperature "feels like" to people and animals during cold weather. Wind chill is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by wind and cold. As the wind increases, it draws heat from the body, driving down skin temperature and eventually the internal body temperature. Once temperatures drop below 10°F (-12°C) and the wind is gusting, conditions are ripe for cold-related illnesses. Below -5°F (-20°C), any wind is a major factor in frostbite and hypothermia.
