Fire Ban in Effect

Wed, May 24, 2023

The Fire Hall is informing residents that due to the Provincial Fire Ban in our area, we will not be issuing category 2 or 3 burning permits (for industrial/waste pile burning) until at least June 15th, or until the public is informed otherwise.

The ban currently does not include campfires, but they can be no bigger than a half metre high by a half metre wide. The ban also does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes - but as summer progresses that may change based on current conditions.

We know - you're thinking that we are too wet to burn, but history shows that's not always the case, and the Department is following the recommendations of the BC Wildfire Service. More details are here:
