Effective May 12, 2023 at 1200 hours, Camrose County is enacting a Restricted FIRE BAN.  

This Restricted Fire Ban:

  1. Suspends all existing fire permits and prohibits the issuance of any new permits.  All existing open burns must be extinguished.
  2. Prohibits the discharge of Fireworks

The following are PERMITTED during this Restricted Fire Ban: 

  • burning barrels equipped with a metal mesh screen
  • safe wood campfires in approved fire pits on private lands and in campgrounds
  • portable propane fire pits
  • gas or propane stoves and barbeques
  • catalytic or infrared style heaters

Off-Highway Vehicles can start wildfires – check frequently to ensure hotspots are free of debris and make sure mufflers and spark arrestors are working properly. 

Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished.

This Fire Restriction will remain in effect until further notice.
