The venting index today is good and tomorrow is good. This may change throughout the day. Please burn responsibly and respect your neighbors. If your smoke becomes a nuisance you will be asked to put your fire out.

As we are still fairly damp in the ground, burn season has been extended to April 30, 2024.

Backyard burning and burn barrels are now allowed without a permit, subject to the venting index. However, machine piles or category 3 piles must be registered(1-888-797-1717) and be inspected by an authorized member of the fire department before burning.(https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/prevention/fire-bans-and-restrictions/open-burning.

Please consider other measures before burning.

Interested in joining the fire department? Come talk to us or send us an email at denmanfire911@gmail.com. Our next intake is coming up and we’re looking for front line firefighters. You’ll be joining an incredible group of individuals who are committed to this community and its safety.
