BC Wildfire Service out with reminders heading into the long weekend

The BC Wildfire Service is out with a couple of reminders heading into the long weekend with the heightened wildfire risk.

The operation of off road vehicles and motorcycles for recreational purposes on crown land continue to be prohibited throughout the Southeast Fire Centre.

The province is also recommending that people stay completely out of the backcountry within the Southeast, Kamloops and Cariboo fire centres...the public is being advised not to visit recreation areas around the region, and visitors that are currently camping and using recreation sites are being encouraged to leave.

The fire ban which has been in place for a majority of the summer also remains in place.
