Current Fire Bans

Effective July 28, 2020 the Special Areas Board is informing the public that a fire advisory is in effect and extends throughout Special Areas No. 2, 3 and 4.

The Special Areas Board advises extreme caution and that only necessary burning should take place. The public is asked to ensure all fires are attended to and completely extinguished before leaving unattended.

Safe campfires are allowed in campgrounds and random camping areas, but may be restricted if conditions do not improve. Incinerator fires are permitted at a minimum distance of 30 m away from structures and 3 m away from combustible materials. Controlled Burns may be restricted.

The Towns or Villages or Provincial Parks within the Special Areas handle their own restrictions and should be contacted directly.

For further information contact:
Special Areas Fire Chief Glen Durand at (403) 779-3733
