Fire Bans & Fire Advisories

Thorhild County monitors fire hazard year round in order to determine the risk of wildfire.  A fire ban is an order issued by the provincial government and/or the County to restrict the use of fire in areas of high hazard.  The order describes what types of fire are allowed or may in fact entirely prohibit the use of any fire.

The general description of the five levels is as follows:


No Restriction
Safe campfires are allowed in campgrounds and backcountry or random camping areas. Any burning other than a campfire requires a fire permit.


Fire Advisory
Safe campfires are permitted in campgrounds and backcountry or random camping areas. Issuance of fire permits for other burning may be restricted.


Fire Restriction
Safe campfires are allowed in fire rings in campgrounds only. No open fires are allowed in backcountry or random camping areas. Fire permits may be suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.


 Fire Ban
No open fires are allowed in campgrounds or in backcountry or random camping areas. All fire permits are suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.


Forest Area Closure
Portions of the forest are closed and no access is permitted for public safety concerns.
