Port Moody Bans Smoking and Open Fires in Parks


This was just released from the City of Port Moody this afternoon. They are following the fire ban in Coquitlam that went into effect on July 6th.

Port Moody bans smoking and open fires due to high fire-hazard rating

Effective Friday July 24, the City of Port Moody is banning smoking in city parks, green spaces and on trails. The ban is due to a high fire-hazard rating brought on by the recent hot, dry weather.

Open fires are also banned in all Port Moody parks. You can use propane and charcoal barbeques, however, please place charcoal in the proper containers.

If the fire-hazard rating reaches “extreme” the City may consider closing down its trails until the hazard diminishes.

Please report any infractions, or sighting of smoke/fire to the Port Moody Fire-Rescue at 604-469-7795 or call 9-1-1.
