Enjoy a Safe Halloween Without Fireworks
"Fireworks are banned in the City in the interest of public safety due to their high potential to cause personal injury and damage to property." : Ennis Mond Chief Fire Prevention Officer
As Halloween approaches, the City of Nanaimo reminds residents of two important rules that enhance public safety.
Residents are also reminded that bonfires are not allowed unless a special event burning permit is requested in person at 580 Fitzwilliam for Halloween (Oct 31) and Guy Fawkes Day (Nov 5). Both permits must be obtained before noon on those dates. All other burning regulations apply.
The City encourages residents to use caution when undertaking Halloween activities and to ensure any candles or other combustibles are fully extinguished after use.
