Coastal Fire Centre has announced a campfire ban
Effective at noon on Wednesday, July, 18, 2018, a campfire ban will be put in place.  The decision comes amid heat warnings from Environment Canada.  The ban will apply to all of the areas within the Coastal Fire Centre, which includes Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.  Exceptions include Haida Gwaii and the “fog zone” running down the western coast of Vancouver Island.  The CFC said that gas, propane and briquette cooking stoves will be permitted. So there are still ways campers can recreate the campfire experience.  learn more

Free Wood Debris Removal - July 7th at Maple Park - 29 Anton Road, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Preparing for the threat of wildfire is a shared responsibility. From home owners, to industry and government we all have responsibility to lessen the effects of wildfire. The Strathcona Regional District received a FireSmart Grant through the Union of BC Municipalities, which we are using to provide wood debris removal over three Saturdays at Maple Park.  There will be two additional Saturday dates for this service in mid-July.

Bring your brush, yard waste and tree debris. Besides having a non-combustible roof; removing brush, yard waste and tree debris are the most significant immediate steps that homeowners can take to protect their property. 

Regular maintenance and cleaning the corners and crevices of your home and yard (where needles and debris build up) will leave nothing for embers to ignite. Fire embers may seem small, but they should not be underestimated — 50% of home fires caused by wildfires are started by sparks and embers.

RULES

  • Debris is only to be dropped off during the date and time listed above.
  • No rocks, No nails
  • No roots longer than 3 inches
  • No invasive species such as scotch broom – more information at http://bcinvasives.ca/
