Fire Advisory for Jurisdiction of SJRFD

Three fire trucks are parked in front of a building.

The St. John’s Regional Fire Department (SJRFD) wishes to advise all citizens that a fire advisory is currently in effect within the region which includes the City of St. John’s, City of Mount Pearl, and Town of Paradise. All open fires are banned until further notice including chimineas and fire pits.

In the meantime, SJRFD are asking people to be fire safe when using propane firepits and barbeques, to keep a hose or fire extinguisher handy and follow manufacturers requirements regarding clearances from combustible materials.
The SJRFD will monitor this situation closely and will update residents of any changes to the ban.
