Category 2 & 3 Open Fire Ban

July 14, 2022

Effective at noon PDT on Friday, July 15, 2022, Category 2 and Category 3 open fires will be prohibited throughout the Coastal Fire Centre's jurisdiction, including the Fraser Valley Regional District. This prohibition is being enacted to help reduce wildfire risk and protect public safety.

This prohibition does not apply to campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller, or to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. While campfires are not prohibited, we encourage the public to use fire responsibly. All human-caused wildfires are preventable.
