Effective at noon on Friday, July 3, 2015, all open fires —including campfires–will be prohibited throughout the entire Kamloops Fire Centre. This prohibition will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.
This step is being taken to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.
This Includes the Barriere Fire District if we find you burning in contravention of Bylaw 55 you are subject to a fine of $300!
We ask that you please be patient and wait until the ban has been lifted to resume campfire burns!
Anyone outside the fire district please visit BCWildfire for information regarding fire restrictions!
Feb 19th at 730pm we were at the community park doing a exercise on radio communication which had our members finding points that were marked and having to radio in for the next clue. The points went through the ball parks into the elementary school yard and then back out again. We felt it was a good area to practice in due to the rash of slash pile burns that haven’t been authorized to show we are out watching our community!
If you would like to take the course to volunteer with Barriere First Resonders show up on the first monday of the month at 7pm at the fire hall or contact them at [email protected] to have course costs worked out for you. If you would like to expand your skill sets contact the names on the poster thanks!
