Fire season: Current fire restrictions

Post Date:03/02/2020 7:57 AM

Fire season runs from March 1 to October 31. Fire permits are required for all burning except campfires until October 31.

Call (780) 623-6767 to get a fire permit from Lac La Biche County. Permits are free but site visits and inspections may be required, and permits may come with conditions.

The County and the provincial government handle fire permitting and wildfire management in different areas. This is because most our County falls within Alberta's Forest Protection Area. Click here to see a map of the County, showing who is responsible for which areas. If your property is in an area handled by the provincial authorities, you will need to contact Alberta Agriculture & Forestry to get a fire permit. Call (780) 623-5388 to contact the local branch.

There may be times when the County and the provincial government need to order fire bans and other restrictions to help protect the community and the environment.
