Kneehill County Fire Bans

Up to date as of October 18th, 2018

There is currently no Fire Ban or Advisory in the Town of Trochu.


There is  a FIRE ADVISORY in effect for Kneehill County as of August 27th, 2018.

The Fire Ban has been lifted with the recent rain, however we remain in an ADVISORY status. The ADVISORY is now in effect for Kneehill County, including Keiver’s Lake Campground and hamlets (Torrington, Huxley, Swalwell, Sunnyslope, Wimborne).
Campfires are allowed, however extreme caution must be taken. Fire permits may now be issued, on an application to application basis (depending on your location, conditions including wind, etc)


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.
