Barbecue ban is lifted. Fire danger rating at low.
Sep 21, 2017
With cooler weather and some recent rain, the three North Shore Fire Chiefs are lifting the barbecue ban in North Shore parks and beaches.
Barbecues are now permitted, including briquette and gas-fuelled ones.
Despite the lifting of the ban, all three North Shore Fire Chiefs are asking the public to continue to be vigilant when out enjoying parks and trails, and report any sign of smoke or fire by calling 911 immediately.
Prohibited all year round
The following are never allowed in West Vancouver due to the risk of spreading a fire:

Discard cigarettes responsibly
Smokers are reminded to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly; they are one of the biggest risks for wildfire, particularly when tossed from vehicles.
