While the Coastal Fire Centre recently lifted the campfire ban on the northern half of Vancouver Island (north of Hindoo Creek [near Buckley Bay], in Strathcona Provincial Park and north of Nootka Sound), a complete fire ban remains in effect within all City of Courtenay contracted Fire Protection Districts due to extremely dry conditions.
• Courtenay Fire Protection District
• Merville Fire Protection District
• Tsolum-Farnham Fire Protection District
The Comox Valley Regional District website provides a map showing all fire protection districts in CVRD Electoral Area C, including those serviced by the Courtenay Fire Department.
In addition, open burning is banned year-round within City of Courtenay boundaries.
