City of Corner Brook
Media Advisory

Public Notice

Due to a change in temperature and rain in Corner Brook, the fire ban has been lifted for the city effective July 21, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. The City of Corner Brook and the Corner Brook Fire Department would like to thank all residents and permit holders who complied with the requirements of fire permits and observed the burning band.

All open air burning is now once again subject to the provisions of the Fire Prevention Regulations that require a permit within the boundaries of the City during the months of June, July and August.

Please be advised that a fire ban may be re-imposed at any time if weather conditions turn very hot and dry again. The Fire Department is urging residents to use caution with any outdoor burning. Conditions can change at any time, which can quickly increase the risk of fires.
