Fire Danger Rating is HIGH

Jul 30, 2015

The Fire Danger Rating for the municipality of Delta is currently set to HIGH.

The Open Burning Ban remains in effect, including a ban on campfires and open cooking (briquette and propane BBQs), in all areas of Delta until further notice. In addition, smoking is prohibited in Delta parks.

On July 27, 2015, Delta announced the reopening of the five previously closed parks:

With the recent forecast of continuous warm weather, we anticipate the Fire Danger Rating may upgrade again to Extreme within a couple of weeks. Staff will be monitoring the situation closely and will reevaluate park closures at that time.

The public is urged to exercise caution and remain on designated park trails to reduce the risk of accidental fires. Please report any fires directly to 9-1-1 and any unauthorized activity that poses a risk of fire to the Delta Police Department’s 24/7 non-emergency line at 604- 946-4411.
