This notice is from the BC Wildfire Management website:
KAMLOOPSWhat's the difference between a fire zone and a fire centre? A centre is dispatch and operational office that serves several geographical zones. The Kamloops Fire Centre office is located near the airport and encompasses Kamloops, Clearwater, Lillooet, Salmon Arm, Merritt, Vernon, and Penticton. See this map for fire zones.
Effective at noon May 15, 2011, open fires will be restricted within most of the Kamloops Fire Centre's jurisdiction to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public. The restriction will remain in effect until Oct. 15, 2011, or until further notice. Specifically this ban prohibits:
- Burning any waste, slash or other material
- Burning stubble or grass
These open fires and burning activities are prohibited in the all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre except the Clearwater and Salmon Arm fire zones. All open burning will be prohibited across the Kamloops Fire Centre effective June 15, 2011.
- The use of fireworks or burning barrels of any size or description
