Here is some information about the fire conditions and the firefighting
There is currently a forest fire 6 miles northwest of Örnsköldsvik around the village of Brattsjö. According to the Fire Authority in Örnsköldsvik, which the O-Ringen officials have continuous contact with, there is no risk of this firespreading to Örnsköldsvik.
Because of the fire ban in Örnsköldsvik and the surrounding area, we all need to work together to ensure that our cooking is done safely. The Fire Department encourages all visitors to choose cooking alternatives that do not involve using an open flame.
It is of utmost importance that the fire ban is respected and that cooking is done only in the designated areas. Please note that all barbecues are completely forbidden – even in the designated areas.
