Fire Permits
Fire permits help us to track what is burning on the landscape. If you're burning without a fire permit or outside fire permit conditions, your fire is considered a wildfire. By getting a fire permit you help keep our firefighters free to fight real wildfires instead of responding to the smoke in your backyard. 

To request a free fire permit call 310-0000 to be connected to your local Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Office.
