Please be advised that Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services has rescinded the FIRE ADVISORY effective 11:00 am Tuesday, January 9, 2024. The FIRE ADVISORY has been lifted because of the reduced hazard due to temperature and snow conditions. Weather forecast conditions are continuously monitored and the long term forecast may necessitate future advisories.
Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services sincerely thanks our residents and visitors for their vigilance, patience, and compliance with the recent FIRE ADVISORY and reminds all that we must always use caution and be responsible. Our behaviour is within our control; Fire Behaviour is not.
Fire Permits in accordance to bylaw and conditions imposed by Fire Guardians will again be allowed.
Fire Permits are Required
Regardless of the season, County residents are required to obtain a Fire Permit for open burning (not including burn barrels or cooking/warming campfires in approved pits) through a County-appointed Fire Guardian. Fire Guardians can be contacted via the County at 780.785.3411 or toll-free 1.866.880.5722, or via their direct phone numbers listed on CountyFire.ca.
All permit conditions must be followed. Burning without a permit or outside of allowed conditions may result in fines, firefighting expenses, or worse: lost property and endangered lives.
