Comox Valley Regional District issues campfire ban

As a result of a campfire ban enacted by BC Wildfire Service, the Comox Valley Regional District and its surrounding partner agencies have issued the same campfire ban.

Campfires are now prohibited throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction, including all provincial parks, crown land and private property.

The following area fire departments are involved in the campfire ban:

• Comox Fire Rescue

• Courtenay Fire Department

• Cumberland Fire Rescue

• Denman Island Fire Rescue

• Fanny Bay Volunteer Fire Department

• Hornby Island Fire Rescue

• Oyster River Fire Rescue

• Ships Point Volunteer Fire Department

• Union Bay Fire Rescue

The campfire prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or portable campfire devices that use briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, provided they are CSA or ULC approved, and the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres.

To further reduce wildfire risk in the Comox Valley, a smoking ban has been issued in all CVRD parks.
