Fire Permits

There is currently a Fire Ban in effect for Lethbridge County.  

All active Fire Permits are cancelled and no new permits will be issued at this time.

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


To apply for a Fire Permit, fill out the online form at the bottom of the page:

Please note:

  • Fire Permits are free of charge and are normally valid for 14 days from the day of issue.
  • Permits are not valid until approved by a Lethbridge County Fire Guardian or Designate and you receive a permit number.
  • Be sure to thoroughly read Section 1 of the application to understand your responsibilities.
  • If the Fire Hazard is high, Lethbridge County may impose a Fire Ban which automatically cancels all issued Fire Permits.  Always check our website or the Alberta Fire Bans website for more information and before you burn to ensure no Fire Ban is in effect.
