Wildfire season is officially here! This means permits are required for any burning in the Forest Protection Area outside of campfires. Contact your local Agriculture and Forestry office to get a free permit.
The start of wildfire season is a great time to check on any burning you may have done over the winter months. Often winter burns can smoulder under snow and resurface once the snow has melted as a wildfire. It's important to make sure your fires are completely extinguished. For more information on safe burning practices check out our blog.
Keep up to date on the wildfire situation by subscribing to the Rocky Forest Area wildfire update or download the Alberta Wildfire app for Apple or Android devices.
