Fire ban in Västernorrland County

The fire risk in Västernorrland is very high right now. From June 23 at 12 noon there is a ban on fire in the county. The purpose of the fire ban is to prevent forest fires.

The decision on a fire ban was made by the County Administrative Board of Västernorrland in consultation with the rescue services. The ban applies until the county administrative board announces that it has expired.

It is forbidden to fire and grill with solid fuels in forest and land. By land is meant land that is so close to forest that the fire can easily be spread there. Examples of solid fuels are firewood, coal, briquettes, grass, rice, and branches.

The fire ban does not apply to areas where houses and buildings are adjacent to each other or only separated by a road, street or parkland. You can barbecue on your own garden plot, on courtyards and courtyards to apartment buildings, on your colonial lots, in parks and at certain camping facilities. But it is important to remember that even allowed cooking and grilling takes place at your own risk.

Cabins in Skuleskogen National Park will remain open

The open cabins in the national park will remain open. However, due to Covid-19 we advise against planned cabin-to-cabin hikes. We suggest you make one or more day trips into the park instead. The cabins are small and there is limited opportunity for visitors to practice social distancing and good hygiene, and this may increase the risk of Covid-19 spreading.
There are areas in the park without mobile phone coverage, so if you become sick while in the park, it can be difficult to get help. It can also take a long time for help to get to you. Please follow the advice from the department of health and stay home if you are feeling unwell.
