    Campfire Ban Effective 12 PM (Noon) July 12, 2024

    July 09, 2024

    BC Wildfire Service has enacted a province-wide campfire prohibition effective 12 PM (noon) Friday, July 12, 2024. This prohibition is being enacted to help prevent human caused wildfires and protect public safety.

    Fire 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. Category 2 and Category 3 open fires remain prohibited in Haida Gwaii Forest District.

    This prohibition will be in place until 12 p.m. (noon) PDT on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2024, or until the order is rescinded.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