Fire Restriction Smoky Lake County
Smoky Lake County has implemented a Fire Restriction effective 8:00 a.m. April 29, 2019. Smoky Lake County will not be issuing burn permits till further notice. With the dry conditions, cured dry grass becoming more prominent and lack of moisture the fire hazard is high at this time.
It is recommended that all burn permits that were issued be checked, to ensure that they are out and not cause a spring grass fire.
Fire pits, warming fires, barbeques and burn barrels will be allowed but must be supervised to ensure that they do not cause a secondary fire.
For further information please contact the Smoky Lake County, (780) 656-3730Current Fire Ban Information can also be found on an interactive map through Alberta Fire Bans
Thank you for your feedback, please stay tuned for the results
