Fire Ban

Effective at 12 p.m. (noon) PDT on Friday, July 12, 2024, campfires will be prohibited throughout the Coastal Fire Centre. This prohibition is being enacted to help prevent human caused wildfires and protect public safety.

These prohibitions apply to all public and private land within the Coastal Fire Centre jurisdiction, unless specified otherwise in an enactment (e.g., in a local government bylaw). Always check with local government authorities to see if any other burning restrictions are in effect.

This prohibition will be in place until 12 p.m. (noon) PDT on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2024, or until the order is rescinded.

To report a wildfire, call 1 800-663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cell phone. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, visit the BC Wildfire Dashboard.
