FIRE ADVISORY IN EFFECT
A fire advisory is in effect for the Lac La Biche Forest Area section of the Forest Protection Area due to a dry grass fire hazard.
Under this advisory:
- No new fire permits will be issued for non-essential heavy burning (windrows, machine piled brush piles, etc…) until the advisory is lifted. All other permits will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Previous burning sites should be checked for extinguishment. Caution should be exercised during windy conditions.
Small, safe cooking and warming (campfires) are allowed.
Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished. If you see a wildfire, report it immediately by calling 310-FIRE.
