Public Notice: Open Fire Ban Reminder
Due to several recent burning complaints, Smithers Fire Rescue is reminding residents that an open fire ban is still in effect.
Smithers Fire Rescue would like to remind residents that the Open Fire Ban issued on July 10th, 2017, prohibiting any camp fires and other types of open fires within the municipality of Smithers is still in effect. This ban will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.
This ban does not restrict fires in cooking stoves using gas propane, or briquettes.
The open fire ban is in effect due to the large number of wildfires in BC, to protect life safety, and to limit the risk of person caused fires.
For more information, please go to the Town of Smithers website at: www.smithers.ca, or contact Smithers Fire Rescue at @ 250-847-2015.
To report a fire, please call 911.
Thank you for your attention to safety.
