Forest Fire Danger

Forest Fire Danger

Fire Danger rating is HIGH. Forest fuels are very dry and the fire risk is serious. New fires may start easily, burn vigorously, and challenge fire suppression efforts. Extreme caution must be used.

Backyard burning of toxic materials, garbage, construction waste, demolition waste and garden refuse is NOT permitted in the District of Sechelt. This is a smoke release bylaw regulated by the District of Sechelt Bylaw Officer, not the Sechelt Fire Department.

As an alternative, Salish Soils accepts yard waste free of charge.
