The City of Corner Brook Fire Services is asking all residents to exercise caution when using their approved fire pits.
When enjoying a leisure activity, such as a back yard barbecue or approved fire pit, please be responsible, diligent and safe. This includes charcoal barbecues, recreational fires in campgrounds and in parks.
- Keep a garden hose nearby, connected and ready for use in case of a fire.
- Safely douse the fire when you’re done. The safest way to extinguish an outdoor fire is with water.
- Watch the wind direction to ensure sparks aren’t getting on flammable materials.
- Never leave outdoor fires unattended.
To report a fire, or unauthorized burning, call 9-1-1
Corner Brook Fire Services will continue to monitor the situation. If environmental conditions deteriorate, the advisory may be upgraded to a fire restriction, or ban.
