There are no fire bans or restrictions in effect at this time.
Dry weather can lead to fire hazards in City parks, fields and other green spaces. When the fire hazard is extreme, the City of Edmonton may issue a fire ban or fire restriction to protect life and property.
Fire bans/restrictions can prohibit any of these regulated activities:
- Open burning
- Firepits and cooking stoves in parks
- Backyard firepits
Edmonton Fire and Rescue Services (EFRS) wants to work with Edmontonians to keep everyone safe. Therefore, during a fire ban/restriction, EFRS will emphasis compliance over enforcement. However, failure to comply could result in a fine and/or fighting fees if the actions result in a fire or are deemed dangerous to the life, property and/or environment of Edmonton.
You can help keep Edmonton safe by checking www.albertafirebans.ca or calling 311 before you burn to find out if there is a fire ban in Edmonton.
