Fire Ban Lifted August 29, 2014

Posted on

Please note that effective noon August 29, 2014, campfires will once again be permitted throughout the Cumberland Fire Jurisdiction. The campfire prohibition is being lifted due to forecasted cool and rainy weather conditions.

The following uses will now be allowed:

– campfires, as defined by the wildfire regulation

– open fires in an outdoor stove

– recreational fires with pemit

The public is reminded that campfires cannot be larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide. Anyone who lights a campfire must have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least eight litres of water available to fully extinguish it. Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure that the ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area for any length of time.

To keep track of any changes to this prohibition, please watch the Ministry of Forest, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations website:

If you see a fire, please call 911. If you see a Forest Fire, please call *5555.

To speak with the Village of Cumberland Fire Chief, call: (250) 336-2291
