The Level 2 FIRE BAN issued on May 6th, 2013 is herewith rescinded, as of 10:00 am, on Friday, May 17th, 2013.
As of 10:00 am today, May 17th, 2013 fire burning permits may be issued by Fire Guardians for their respective Fire Districts as required.
People are asked to be careful when burning, to monitor wind conditions and if the wind picks up later in the day, burning should be shut down.
Contact your Local Fire Department to obtain permission to burn and a free Kneehill County Fire Permit. If conditions deteriorate, a Fire Ban could be issued at any time and will cancel all existing fire permits.
All fires must be supervised and under control at all times: Have fire-fighting equipment at the fire site; keep a rake, shovel, containers of water and an extinguisher nearby. Ensure a hose is within reach of your fire so you can put out spot fires. Consider the prevailing wind direction and clearances from buildings and vehicles to avoid fire spread and always stop burning if your smoke obstructs any road or highway. Always supervise your fire and extinguish spot fires caused by embers quickly. Burn your debris in an approved concrete block fire pit or a metal container with a sturdy wire-mesh cover to stop hot embers and fire brands from escaping. When you leave, double-check and make sure the fire is out. Never use gasoline or liquid fire starters to start a fire, (explosion hazards), avoid burning paper as it can ignite and blow off the fire. Stop adding fuel to the fire well before you want to extinguish it and allow the fire to burn down. Spread the remains evenly in the fire pit and slowly stir in water until the ashes are cool. Test the fire pit or barrel for heat before leaving the site unattended.
Towns or Villages and Provincial Parks within the County handle their own fire restrictions and should be contacted directly.
