NO BURNING RESTRICTIONS

Effective at noon on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, all open fires will once again be permitted throughout the Coastal Fire Centre's jurisdiction, since recent rainfall and cooler temperatures have reduced wildfire risks in the region.

Category 2 open fires and Category 3 open fires will be permitted, as well as the use of tiki torches, burn barrels, fireworks, sky lanterns and binary exploding targets.

The campfire ban that was in place in the Coastal Fire Centre this summer was lifted on Sept. 18, 2017.

Local governments may still have their own burning restrictions in place, so people should always check with local authorities before lighting any fire of any size.

Anyone lighting a Category 3 fire must first obtain a burn registration number by calling 1 888 797-1717. A Category 3 fire is a fire that burns material more than two metres high or three metres wide, stubble or grass over more than 2,000 square metres, or more than two piles of any size.

If you require further information or clarification please call the Fire Hall 1 250 757 9433, or the Fire Chief on 1 250 240 0419, or the Deputy Chief 1 250 228 2200.
