FIRE BANS

 

Please visit this page often for notification in the event the fire ban situation changes.  For bans throughout Alberta, check out www.albertafirebans.ca 

 

Please be advised there are no current Fire Bans

Conditions of fire permits and fire bans must be followed. Failure to do so will result in a minimum penalty of $500.00.

Please ensure all previous permitted fires are completely extinguished and all smoking material is out or disposed of in a burn proof container rather than tossing onto the ground or out a vehicle window.

 


 

FIRE BAN Info Sheet (defines types of bans and what is/not allowed)

 

During a Total Fire Ban, there will be absolutely NO BURNING!

This includes: burning barrels, smudge, and recreational fires. All fire permits issued are cancelled until further notice. Burning during a fire ban could result in a minimum penalty of $500.00, plus any related costs for extinguishing the fire.
 
During a Partial Fire Ban, only recreational and incinerator fires are allowed. All other fires are still banned. These recreational and incinerator fires must be contained, supervised and fully extinguished upon completion.
 
Burning without a permit could result in a minimum penalty of $500.00.
 
When fires burn out of control in our County, extra demand is placed on staff and our volunteer fire fighters, creating large costs. The County will be aggressively pursuing cost recovery from individuals who light fires during a ban, or burn without a permit.
