Rocky View County has upgraded its previous fire advisory to a fire ban as we head into a warm, dry weekend. 

The ban is in effect for East & West Rocky View County.

This ban is expected to remain in effect until weather conditions improve. 

During a fire ban, 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 (registration required -- call 403-264-1022)

The Town of Cochrane remains under a Fire Advisory.
