After careful consideration and consultation with Fisheries and Land Resources, the Fire Department has temporarily lifted the Fire Ban in Conception Bay South.

Most forest fires are started when the Fire Index is in the LOW to MODERATE range, so we encourage residents to remain cautious if having an open fire. All aspects of the Town’s Open Air Fire Regulations remain in effect and permits for an open fire will be required from both the Conception Bay South Fire Department and Fisheries and Land Resources (Forestry Division at Paddy’s Pond). The Fire Chief will be monitoring environmental conditions on a daily basis, in consultation with the appropriate agencies. If conditions once again become increasingly dry, the Town will re-institute the Fire Ban.

Thank you for your cooperation.
