Effective noon September 22, 2017 the Campfire Ban has ENDED throughout the Central Okanagan.
A campfire is a fire used for the purpose of cooking and/or to provide heat and light associated with camping or recreation.
Campfires are permitted when there is NO ban in effect, with the permission of the property owner provided that the fire is fuelled by seasoned wood only.
The fire is to be no larger than 1 metre in diameter and height and must be supervised at all times. Equipment to extinguish the fire must be available to prevent the fire from getting out of control. Campfires will not be allowed when the Ministry of Forests declares a campfire ban, generally during a high or extreme fire hazard rating. The District then follows suit.
A minimum separation of 3 metres shall be maintained between campfires and any combustible material.
