Nanaimo Burning Ban

Burning Ban Still In Effect

While the rain yesterday helped to lessen the risk of fires, the burning ban is still in force in Nanaimo.

Firefighters have had their hands full lately dealing with fires which could have been deliberately set and they don't need to waste resources and manpower going to fires which should have never been started in the first place.

That includes nuisance fires such as beach fires and the like. Fires which people with any common sense would never start in the first place.

As a reminder there currently is a ban on ALL open burning in Nanaimo and a complete ban in city parks which includes:
  • no smoking
  • no campfires
  • no barbecues

Propane barbecues are alright if they are in approved areas of the park.

To report a fire in Nanaimo call 911, to report a wildfire call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks.
