campfire ban

A few days of clouds and drizzles seem to have done the trick!

As of 12 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11th, all campfire bans in the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction will be lifted.

Here’s the area covered by their jurisdiction:

Along with campfires, this means the use of tiki torches, chimineas, stoves and portable campfire apparatuses will also be permitted.

There is still a ban on Category 2 and Category 3 fires. These include:

  • stubble or grass burning of any size
  • the use of sky lanterns
  • the use of fireworks (including firecrackers)
  • the use of burn barrels or burning cages of any size or description
  • the use of binary exploding targets (e.g. for target practice)
