Municipal fire bans or provincial park fire bans may be in effect at any time across the province.  Check before you plan your trip, or before you make plans that may require alterations due to a fire ban. 

Please note that the fire hazard across Alberta changes daily. Albertans are asked to take extra care with any type of fire to ensure they don't accidentally cause a wildfire. Alberta typically experiences about 1,600 wildfire starts a year - about half of those are caused by human carelessness.  To learn more about Wildfires or Prescribed Fires in Alberta, visit the Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development website.

To report a wildfire, call 310-FIRE (3473).

In the event of any fire emergency, please call 9-1-1 for assistance.
