Open Burning Ban in Effect
Important announcement regarding open burning on the island. Under the directive of the RDN, the Gabriola Volunteer Fire Department has now implemented a complete ban on all open burning. This is due to the current COVID-19 health emergency and air quality concerns for those that may be affected. This ban is effective immediately and you will see all the “No Fire” signs up around the island by the end of the day.
Exemptions from the open burning ban are cooking fires and wood stoves to heat your homes. We thank you for your continued support and compliance during these difficult times. We will get through this, together.
