Fire Ban in Effect

Due to the dry, windy conditions that exist and are forecasted to continue, Lethbridge County has issued a Fire Ban on all open fires within its municipal boundaries.  

Under the Fire Ban, all active fire permits are cancelled, and no new permits will be issued until further notice.  Burning of any kind is not permitted, including burning anything in a barrel, household garbage, yard debris, etc.

Fires that are contained in cooking or heating appliances fueled by fluids or gasses (gas or propane fueled fire rings, BBQs, stoves, and heaters) are exempt from the ban.

It is a fineable offence to ignite or allow a fire to burn under a Fire Ban.

The Fire Ban is effective as of 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, December 1, 2021.
