Fire Contained On Burnaby Mountain

Posted 1:50 PM July 5, 2015

The Burnaby Fire Department has contained a small brush fire that broke out this morning on the north slope of Burnaby Mountain. Crews will be maintaining a presence in the area for the duration.

No evacuation orders have been issued. Residents affected by the smoke are to close their windows or may choose to leave the area. Delays and rerouting for transit services are expected due to road closures in the area. Using the hiking trails are not recommended at the moment. Park users are reminded to use care and attention during these extreme fire danger conditions. Please visit the Simon Fraser University Road Report web page for updated information.

Air Quality Advisory

Metro Vancouver has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter and potential health impacts, due to smoke from wildfires outside our region. This advisory is expected to continue until there is a change in the current weather.

Program Support - Allergies

Program Support Allergies Feature

If you or your child has a severe allergy, please register as early as possible for programs and submit a completed Program Support Package for Disabilities and Allergies. This will give us time to help you work out a safety strategy. In most cases, children with life-threatening allergies must be accompanied by an adult who can administer emergency medication.

For sessions 3.5 hours or less, participants requiring emergency medical support, such as an epi-pen, must have an adult on site. For sessions over 3.5 hours, such as summer camps, children with life-threatening allergies may participate independently after completing a series of forms (including one from a doctor) and meeting with staff well in advance of the start date. In upper level aquatic courses taken to become a lifeguard or swim instructor (Bronze Star level and higher), staff are trained and able to assist with emergency medication. Registration for sessions requires participants to confirm they have emergency medication and bring their emergency medication to each class.

For more information for participants with allergies, please contact the location where you plan to register.
