Fire Restriction in effect

Lethbridge County has issued a Fire Restriction effective 9:30 a.m. Thursday, August 4, 2022 due to the hot weather we have been experiencing.  Additional heat and dry, windy conditions are forecasted for the coming days, elevating the risk for fire spread.

Under the Restriction no fire permits or fireworks permits will be issued until further notice.  All active permits are cancelled.  Fines apply for burning during a Fire Restriction.

Recreational campfires (campground and backyard fire pits) and acceptable incinerators that meet the specifications of the County’s Fire Bylaw #22-002 are permitted.  Visit or call the County office at 403-328-5525 to determine if yours meets the criteria.  Fires that are contained in cooking or heating appliances fueled by fluids or gasses (gas or propane fueled fire rings, BBQs, stoves, and heaters) are also allowed.

Lethbridge County may move from a Fire Restriction to a Fire Ban at any time.  Always be aware of the current Fire Ban status by visiting
