Yeah, thanks for the heads up. You just saved us some trouble. I saw fire ban, and literally sent an email saying leave wood and fire pan at home.
That said, the implication in case of emergency is that the fire ban does not apply or at least I will not be ticketed. That is to say, if I needed to send out smoke signals and I accidentally started a wildfire, then I wouldn't be charged with arson? Seems more likely that rules are the rules; no exceptions.
