Red Deer County and Town of Sylvan Lake lift fire bans

The County and Town have lifted the fire ban thanks to cooler, wet weather.

The cooler weather and increase in precipitation has brought the end of the fire ban for Red Deer County.

At 3 p.m. on Monday afternoon, the County lifted the ban on fires.

With the ban lifted, camp fires are allowed within the County so long as it is contained in an “acceptable fire pit.”

However, permits for all open fires are still required within the county.

Fire Services in Red Deer County will continue to monitor the weather. A fire ban may be put back into place should hot and dry temperatures return to the area.

While the County has rescinded its fire ban the Town of Sylvan Lake has not.

As of 8 a.m. Tuesday morning the fire ban in Sylvan Lake was also ended.

The ban on fire in town has been lifted in time fore the September-long weekend.

The Town of Sylvan Lake asks residnets and visitors to enjoy the warmth of a campfire responsibly over the long weekend.
