Grande Prairie Area Update

Grande Prairie Forest Area - FIRE BAN and Off Highway Vehicle restriction lifted for the Grande Prairie Forest Area - June 7, 2019

Posted on Fri, Jun 07, 2019


The Fire Ban and Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) restriction for the Grande Prairie Forest Area has been lifted effective 10:30 AM June 7, 2019. Cooler temperatures, higher humidity and additional shower activity forecast throughout the weekend has reduced the fire danger sufficiently to lift the Fire Ban and OHV restriction.

Safe campfire

Fire permits are required for all types of burning; except a campfire (cooking and warming). Burning is not permitted during windy conditions. Remember you must evaluate the weather at your specific location. Get a permit and follow the conditions. You can be held responsible if a fire escapes the burn permit area. If you live within the Forest Protection Area, please contact your local Forestry office to get a permit (780) 538-5560. Anyone living outside the Forest Protection Area can contact their municipality for information about local fire permit requirements.
