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.
FIRESMART COMMUNITY SERIES
The FireSmart Community Series is being held in Fort McMurray this year from October 2-4. There's still tickets available! Learn more about how we can all mitigate the risk of wildfire in our own backyard.
