Effective 12:00 pm (noon) on Wednesday, September 27th, the campfire ban will be lifted on Salt Spring Island. This is the result of recent rainfall that has reduced wildfire risk in the region.
Backyard burning, incinerators, and land-clearing fires are still prohibited at this time.
Prior to burning, please ensure that you have water on site, a safe non-combustible area for burning and that you have obtained a Fire Permit. Fires must be supervised while burning.
For more information about open burning give us a call (250-537-2531), or visit the Ganges fire hall.
