Kneehill County Fire Bans

Updated August 15th, 2018

A Fire Ban is now in effect for the Town of Trochu

The Fire Ban includes a ban on:

  • Incinerators (for acreage use);
  • Camp stoves;
  • Solid fuel barbecues (charcoal briquettes);
  • Recreational camp fires; and
  • Chimeneas

At this time, internal household fireplaces, and liquid fuel barbecues and fire pits(propane and natural gas), are still permitted – never leave an open flame unattended. Have a fire extinguisher nearby just in case the liquid fuel fire pit or bbq tips over.

Due to dry conditions, the Town of Trochu and the Trochu Fire Department also remind the public to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly

There is  a full FIRE BAN in effect in Kneehill County as of August 9th, 2018.

 Open fires including charcoal or wood fuel sources are NOT allowed. Propane fire pits and barbecues are allowed.

 


Check out the new Alberta Fire Bans mobile application!

Available for iOS and Android, the Alberta Fire Bans application is intended to provide the public with quick access for fire bans in the province. Keeping people informed of fire bans across the province will help people plan their summer activities safely, whether in their backyards or in Alberta’s parks and natural areas, while reducing the risk of wildfire. Search “Alberta Fire Bans” in your app stores to find it.
