Winter burning

The wildfire season in Alberta has ended. Fire permits are no longer required, however you are still responsible for any fires you light in the winter. Before conducting your winter burning review these safe burning practices. Also, remember to go back and check your winter burns to ensure they are extinguished. A fire left smouldering can burn underground all winter long and cause a wildfire in the spring. Firefighters thank you for doing your part to prevent wildfires.
