[ARCHIVED] Fire Advisory in place for Lac La Biche Forest Protection Area

AB Fire Bans

FIRE ADVISORY IN EFFECT


In response to recent precipitation in many areas of the province, the fire ban in the Forest Protection Area has been revoked and a fire advisory has been put in place by the Province of Alberta. The Lac La Biche Forest Protection Area covers a large portion of the northern half of the Municipal District of Bonnyville.

A fire advisory means Albertans in the Forest Protection Area can safely enjoy the use of a fire pit in their backyard, charcoal briquettes on a barbecue, or a safe campfire.

Permissible:

  • safe wood campfires on public land, private land or in provincial campgrounds as long as they are inside an engineered campfire ring
  • backyard firepits
  • charcoal briquette barbecues
  • use of propane, natural gas or powered appliance
  • catalytic or infrared-style heaters
  • safe burning with a permit
  • recreational off-highway vehicle use

Not permissible:

  • burning (excluding campfires) without a permit
  • unattended or unsafe campfires

Restrictions can be phased back in as necessary to address wildfire risk area-by-area, allowing Albertans the freedom to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.  The province will re-evaluate daily.
