Coastal Fire Centre – Open Fire Prohibition

in Latest News, Safety

As of noon, Wednesday June 7, 2017, the BC Coastal Fire Centre has enacted a prohibition on Category 2 open fires. This prohibition also includes fireworks, firecrackers, sky lanterns, burn barrels or burning cages of any size or description, and binary exploding targets.   While Pitt Meadows’ spring burning season is now over, this is an important reminder that should any illegal burning occur while this ban is in effect, the fines levied for illegal burning will be substantial. Please take a moment to read the press release that was issued and also visit the website of the BC Wildfire Service for more information and tips on how to be FireSmart this summer.
