Effective April 10, 2024 at 12:30 hours, Beaver Emergency Services Commission has declared a Fire Restriction.

The fire restriction prohibits all open-air burning. All fire permits are now suspended and no new fire permits will be issued while the fire restriction is in effect.

Please extinguish all previously permitted fires and check recently burned brush piles to ensure they are extinguished completely.

Campfires in a BESC approved container with a mesh screen are still permitted provided they are continuously attended and have adequate water supply available. Only firewood or charcoal, in an approved fire pit with a mesh screen, are to be burned. Please ensure wind speeds of less than 10 km/h when burning. Applications for an approved fire pit are available on the BESC website.
