Spring Training 2017

Spring Training 2017 was a huge success for the volunteers at Grand Forks Fire/Rescue. Over 250 volunteer firefighters from around BC came to Grand Forks. We had 50+ instructors presenting 26 different topics, and had a chance to show off our new training ground in the process.

Support and interest from the community was amazing, and the many fire service vendors and service providers who contributed truly made it possible to present the quality event that we did.

Event photographer Peter Kalasz has many more photos available on his website in two albums - please check them out!

Open Burning Ban - Southeast Fire Centre

The Southeast Fire Centre has re-instated the burning ban on Category 2 open fires that was lifted a couple of weeks ago. Category 3 open fires remain banned as well.

Specifically, prohibited activities include:
* The burning of waste or other materials.
* Stubble or grass fires of any size over any area.
* The use of fireworks, sky lanterns, burning barrels or burning cages of any size or description.
* The use of binary exploding targets.
* The use of air curtain burners (forced air burning systems).

A map of the affected area is available online at: http://bit.ly/1dMzbdA
This prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or
smaller, and it does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. To learn
about the differences between campfires, Category 2 open fires and Category 3 open fires,
please visit: http://bit.ly/1GlhE9l

Reminder: Open burning of all types is prohibited by bylaw inside Grand Forks city limits year-round.
