    Forest Protection Area Fire Ban Has Been Lifted

    Forest Protection Area Fire Ban Has Been Lifted

    Please be advised that the fire ban in the Forest Protection Area of Alberta has been lifted.  We now have a fire advisory in place.    

    In response to recent precipitation in many areas of the province, the fire ban in the Forest Protection Area has been revoked and a fire advisory has been put on in its place.

    A fire advisory means Albertans in the Forest Protection Area can safely enjoy the use of a fire pit in their backyard, charcoal briquettes on a barbecue, or a safe campfire.

    Permissible:

    • safe wood campfires on public land, private land or in provincial campgrounds as long as they are inside an engineered campfire ring
    • backyard fire pits
    • charcoal briquette barbecues
    • use of propane, natural gas or powered appliance
    • catalytic or infrared-style heaters
    • safe burning with a permit
    • recreational off-highway vehicle use

    Not permissible:

    • burning (excluding campfires) without a permit
    • unattended or unsafe campfires

    Restrictions can be phased back in as necessary to address wildfire risk area-by-area, allowing Albertans the freedom to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. We will re-evaluate daily.

    We expect this fire advisory to reduce the number of human-caused wildfires in Alberta, while allowing Albertans to enjoy outdoor activities as much as possible.

    Stay tuned to www.albertafirebans.ca throughout the wildfire season for more information about fire bans and restrictions in the Forest Protection Area of Alberta.
