Category 2 open fire bans in place -- includes fireworks

From the BC Wildfire Services:

It’s almost the Canada Day long weekend, and we know many people are making plans to celebrate – which may mean using fireworks. But did you know that firework bans have been implemented alongside Category 2 and 3 open fire bans?

Current Category 2 open fire bans are in place in the Cariboo, Kamloops, and Coastal Fire Centres (excluding the Haida Gwaii Natural Resource District and the Fog Zone). The Cariboo, Kamloops, and Southeast Fire Centres additionally have Category 3 open fire bans at this time.

Setting off fireworks is considered to be a high-risk activity, since they can easily ignite forest fuels and start a wildfire.

We'll be visiting Lac Le Jeune every third Friday from 11:00-noon, starting June 1st.

Also, thanks to Coleen Krawchuk, we have a regular inflow of books donated by the TNRD Library system for placement in our Little Free Libraries.
