37 tickets issued for prohibited or unattended fires

37 tickets issued for prohibited or unattended fires

Postby gsc » Sep 1st, 2017, 11:09 am

According to the B.C. Conservation Officer Service’s deputy chief, Chris Doyle, 37 tickets have been issued for prohibited or unattended fires in the past week.

Are you kidding me. Do these people live under a rock or just stupid. The fire ban applies to every one not just random people.

I would also love to know what is going through someone's head when they think It's OK to have a fire during a fire ban. They can't keep playing stupid and saying they didn't know about the fire ban.
I can be the best neighbor or I can be the neighbor from hell choose wisely.

The current fines are a step in the right direction - but obviously still not significant enough.

I fully agree with you. Clearly the fine we have now is not a big enough deterrent. 37 fines in one week is just crazy thats roughly 5 fires a day being found.

The one positive to take away from this is that the BC Conservation services is taking this seriously and aggressively seeking out offenders.
