Effective at noon on June 7, 2017, Category 2 open fires will be prohibited throughout the Coastal Fire Centre's jurisdiction, except in Haida Gwaii and the "Fog Zone", to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.
This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 20, 2017 or until the public is otherwise notified. A map of the affected area is available online at: http://ow.ly/zmy830cl1sg
This prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown lands and private lands within the Coastal Fire Centre, but does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire prevention bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department. Please check with local government authorities for any other restrictions before lighting any fire.
