Fire ban is affecting access to and activities within our parks.
Metro Vancouver has released an announcement with updates on the closures of parks as well as additional information on prohibited fires. In many municipalities even the use of propane appliances, or construction or residential chores such as cutting the lawn have been prohibited due to the possibility of a spark that could inadvertently cause a fire. Fire protection services are tapped and so even the slim possibility of a fire that could get out of control needs to be prohibited.
As yet, Anmore has not imposed these restrictions in our residential area, however note that propane and gas fueled appliances are currently banned at Buntzen Lake until further notice.
