Surrey: Wildfire Management Branch has banned open burning in the Coastal Fire Region due to drying weather conditions. With this information and with the start of the summer season, warm temperatures have resulted in dry conditions throughout the Coastal Fire District including the City of Surrey, making outdoor fires a hazard.

With the recent ban implemented for the Coastal Region of BC by the Coastal Fire Centre, the Fire Chief has cancelled all Burning Permits and is prohibiting all types of outdoor fires until further notice. Charcoal barbeques in City Parks and on City Beaches are also prohibited. Cooking appliances such as propane barbeques are permitted.
