While the warmer and drier weather this week may feel like a welcomed treat, it has contributed to an increased fire risk throughout Rocky View County (RVC).
Due to dry and windy conditions, RVC Fire Services has issued a County-wide Fire Ban effective immediately.
All burning and fireworks permits are suspended, and burning is banned, with the following exceptions:
- Indoor household fireplaces
- Camp stoves (properly attended)
- Barbecues (charcoal briquettes, propane, or natural gas)
- Wood pellet grills
- Propane/natural gas fire pit
- Oil well flaring
County officials advise that the fire ban will remain in effect as long as high-risk persist in the area.
