Campfire Fire Ban Notice

Campfire Fire Ban Notice

Effective as of noon Thursday, July 6th 2017 in conjunction with the BC Forest Service, all open burning, including campfires, beach fires and fireworks, will once again be prohibited within the entire Qualicum Beach Fire Protection area to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.

This ban applies to open fires of any size, campfires, fireworks, tiki torches and burning barrels. The ban does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating using briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, that are not capable of producing a flame longer than 15 centimetres. Portable campfire apparatus that do not meet these conditions are prohibited.

We thank you for your cooperation.
