Wildfire Prevention Information

The forest fire hazard rating in the Metro Vancouver region is rated at an extreme level.  This summer, Campus Security has responded to over 17 grassfires on the Burnaby campus, most of which were determined to be caused by carelessly discarded cigarettes.  For the safety of everybody, it is important that flammable materials be discarded in approved containers and never just carelessly discarded on the ground.  SFU enjoys an abundance of green spaces on and around our campuses that are affected by the dry, summer conditions.  These tinder dry spaces can ignite in an instant by the smallest spark.  As a community, it's important that we take care to preserve these green spaces, smoke in designated areas only, and use approved ashtrays to discard of cigarette butts and flammable materials.  Let us all work together to keep our campus safe and green.

Please take the time to review some useful information:
