BC Wildfire Service Newsletter

BC Wildlife Service issued a newsletter on August 26, 2017 to remind citizens of current bans in place within the Southeast Fire Centre area.  Campfires and the use of off-road and on-road vehicles on Crown Land for recreation purposes continues to be banned. Residents who hold valid firewood permits are asked to avoid cutting firewood in the forests so as not to cause any additional fires. Please remember that if you cause or contribute to a wildfire, you may be ordered to pay all fire-fighting and associated costs.

For more information on the status of wildfires in BC and prohibitions, please view the BC Wildlife Services newsletter or call 1.888.3FOREST or visit www.bcwildfire.ca.
