Outdoor Burning Ban

Effective as of Monday, May 13th, an outdoor burning ban has been issued in Surrey.

What this means is that open burning/backyard fires are not allowed in the City of Surrey until further notice.

Natural gas, propane or charcoal briquettes are permitted as long as they are being used in ULC/CSA-approved devices for that particular product. Charcoal briquettes are allowed on private property, but are prohibited in city parks and on city beaches.

City officials also want to point out that if any fire service attendance is needed at an open burning complaint, the violators may be subject to cost recovery.

Just this year alone, the City has already attended to 123 brush/grass fires, and 184 burning complaints.
