MD of Bonnyville No. 87

Fire advisory in effect for the Forest Protection Area within the MD of Bonnyville No. 87

In response to recent precipitation in many areas of the Province, the fire ban in the Forest Protection Area has been revoked and a fire advisory has been put on in its place.

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.


  • safe wood campfires
  • backyard fire pits
  • charcoal briquette BBQ’s
  • 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

We expect this fire advisory to reduce the number of human-caused wildfires in Alberta, while allowing Albertans to enjoy outdoor activities as much as possible. Please monitor daily for any updates or changes.

For further information contact the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority 780-826-4755.
