Campfire ban rescinded

The ban on campfires has been lifted in most Central Okanagan areas.  Campfires are not permitted at any time within the City of Kelowna. 

The ban on campfires within local fire jurisdictions in the Central Okanagan has been in place since July 26th.  Forecast showers and cooler temperatures are reducing the potential fire threat.

The RDCO is reminding smokers that all smoking materials should be carefully extinguished and motorists are reminded not to throw cigarettes or other smoking materials from their vehicle.  Smoking is not allowed in any RDCO regional park or municipal park.  Smoking is also prohibited in children’s play areas, sports fields, undeveloped parks and wilderness trails in the District of Peachland.
