With the recent precipitation and cooler weather there has been a reduction in the forest fire danger rating for our region. As a result, the Maple Ridge Fire Department is lifting the fire ban effective today.
Although fire danger ratings have declined in much of the region due to recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, the public is strongly encouraged to continue exercising extreme caution with any campfire. It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that burning is done in a safe and responsible manner and in accordance with the Maple Ridge Outdoor Burning Regulation.
In addition, please note that the fire ban may still be in place in BC Parks and other regions of the Province. Take the time to learn what the fire regulations are if you leave our community over the Labour Day weekend. Be safe.
