Fire Hazard Information
Parkland County Fire Hazard rating is "MODERATE."
Fire Permits are issued for 10, 30 or 90 days. Residents are encouraged to use safe burning practices in accordance with Bylaw 22-2012 and ensure proper disposal of smoking materials.
Going camping? Always extinguish your campfire and stop frequently to check your OHV to remove debris that builds up on your muffler.
For further information, please contact Fire Services at 780-968-8400.
Fire Hazard Rating Definitions:
EXTREME: Large, erratic-behaving wildfires can start quickly and spread extremely fast. High-intensity, fast-spreading wildfires are very difficult and dangerous to bring under control.
NO OUTDOOR BURNING SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN AREAS WITH AN EXTREME FIRE DANGER RATING.
Fire restrictions are usually in place.
VERY HIGH: Wildfires can start easily, spread rapidly, and increase quickly in intensity. A wildfire that starts in dry grass or slash can develop into a high-intensity wildfire very easily. Outdoor burning is not recommended and fire restrictions may be in effect.
HIGH: Wildfires can start easily from most causes and unattended campfires are very likely to escape. Wildfires may become serious and difficult to control if not successfully contained while small. Outdoor burning should be restricted to early morning or late evening.
MODERATE: Wildfires can start from most accidental causes and spread moderately through dry brush and grasses. Ground crews should be able to contain a wildfire with minimal support from heavy equipment and aircraft. Wildfires not suppressed immediately can still become expensive to extinguish later.
LOW: Wildfires do not readily ignite, unless from a more intense heat source like lightning. Weather and fuel conditions lead to low intensity and relatively easy to control fires. However, caution should always be taken with any type of burning.
