Wildfire season starts today, March 1. This means you need a permit for any burning other than a campfire. Permits are FREE and are available from your local Alberta Wildfire office. Call 780-623-5388 for a permit in the Lac La Biche forest area.
If you are out and about on quads or snow machines and stop to have a campfire, please ensure your fire is completely out before you leave it. Throwing snow on a campfire won't always put it out - use snow and stomp your fire to make sure it is completely extinguished before you leave it.
Thanks for doing your part to prevent wildfire.
