Current fire restriction level: NO RESTRICTION 

The fire restriction in Lac La Biche County has been lifted as of July 15, 2020. Currently, permits are still required for burning, except for campfires. Please call 780-623-6767 for information about fire permitting in our County.

Permitting: Lac La Biche County and Alberta's Forest Protection Area

The County and the provincial government handle fire permitting and wildfire management in different areas. This is because most of 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.
