Open Burning Ban Lifted within the Union Bay Fire Protection Area.

Effective at 12:00 (noon) Pacific Standard Time, Thursday September 16, 2021.  All open fires will again be permitted within the Union Bay Fire Protection Area.  The lifting of the ban is the result of recent rainfall that has reduced the wildfire risk in the region, along with the return of seasonal temperatures.

This means that Campfires, Category 2 and 3 open fires, and Resource Management Burning will be permitted within the Union Bay Fire Protection Area.

The public is asked to undertake open burning responsibly and to follow guidance to ensure their burning is conducted in a safe manner.
