Fire Protection

Paid On-Call (POC) Fire Departments

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) provides fire protection services, in parts of the North Okanagan, through the fire departments of BX-Swan Lake, Lumby & District, and Silver Star.

Open Burning

The summer months, in the North Okanagan,  are often hot and dry which is why open burning is regulated.  Open burning, in Electoral Area 'B' and 'C' is not allowed between May 1st to October 30th.
