Both the Town and County of Barrhead and Lac Ste. Anne County have issued complete fire bans.
All permits for fires other than burn barrels are cancelled. No fire permits will be issued until further notice, and all fire permits for burn barrels are suspended.
Any fires currently burning must be extinguished immediately. This fire ban covers all open fires, including campfires, fires used for cooking and warming, fireworks, charcoal briquette barbecues and all burning barrels. Residents are being asked to monitor extinguished fires in case of holdover fires that could reignite due to dry conditions.
