FIRE ADVISORY IS LIFTED - as of May 30, 2018
Fire permits will again be issued as usual for any burning in the Forest Protection Area of Alberta. Contact your local Agriculture and Forestry office to schedule a site visit to obtain a free permit. Fire permits ensure safe burning practices and allow staff to know where burning is approved so firefighters and aircraft are free to fight wildfires.
Cooler temperatures and higher humidity drop the wildfire danger to LOW across the Rocky Forest Area.
