Fire Bans

Up to date as of April 18th, 2019

There is currently NO Fire Ban in the Town of Trochu.

EFFECTIVE APRIL 11, 2019, a Fire Ban has been issued for Kneehill County, due to the dry and windy spring conditions.

All fire permits are suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.

No campfires (or other open fires) are allowed in campgrounds or backcountry and random camping areas. This includes charcoal briquettes. Gas or propane stoves/barbeques and portable propane fire pits are allowed.

This includes the Kneehill County hamlets (Torrington, Huxley, Sunnyslope, Hesketh, Swalwell) and campgrounds.

Note: The Towns of Trochu and Three Hills, as well as the Villages of Acme, Carbon and Linden may or may not implement a ban within their own municipal borders.

Thank you for your cooperation.
