In addition, the RDN is placing a smoking ban at all RDN-managed community and regional parks and trails to take effect at noon on Thursday, July 6th.
The public is reminded that outside of the two designated RDN campgrounds, fires of any kind are always prohibited in RDN regional and community parks and trails.
This action is in keeping with the campfire ban directive recently released by the Province of British Columbia for the Coastal Fire Centre and is due to increased daily temperatures with no precipitation in the immediate forecast. Please play safe and help protect our forests.
To report a wildfire call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks.
