You are NOT required to obtain a Fire Permit for a backyard Fire Pit, Camp Fire, Consumer / Family Display Fireworks, or for your Burn Barrel. Permits for Burn Barrels became obsolete in 2014, and Fireworks Permits became obsolete in 2020, with changes that remain in place today within Fire Bylaw #29-2020. Importantly, even though Burn Barrel permits are not required, the County DOES NOT ALLOW the use of Burn Barrels in County Hamlets nor in Multi-Parcel (Named) Subdivisions. The discharge of Fireworks must meet the specifications and recommendations of all manufacturers, and all requirements of any applicable laws and regulations, including the National Fire Code – Alberta Edition and all County Bylaws.
Please note that Fire Permits will not be issued for existing fires nor for ground fires; therefore, any existing unpermitted fires must be extinguished immediately.
