Provincial Open Burning Fire Ban

Provincial Open Burning Fire Ban

This is a reminder that there is currently a Provincial Open Burning Fire Ban on all Class 2 and Class 3 type fires.  This includes the burning of grass anywhere within the District of Taylor or the Taylor Rural Fire Protection Area.  Please find information below from the BC Wildfire Service on the current Open Burning FIRE Ban and information specific describing Class 2 and Class 3 type fires.

If you witness any type of irresponsible behaviour that could start a wildfire in British Columbia, please call *5555 or 1-800-663-5555.  Locally in the District of Taylor, report any type of Open Burning, other than a regulated size camp fire (0.5 Meter x 0.5 Meter x 0.5 Meter) by calling 911.

BC Wildfire Service:

* Category 2 open fires;

* Category 3 open fires;

* Resource Management open fires;

* the use of fireworks;

* the use of sky lanterns; and

* the use of burn barrels or burn cages of any size or description (except when used for a campfire).
