Due to the current and forecasted weather conditions, Mountain View County has upgraded the Partial Fire Ban currently in place to a Complete Fire Ban which affects the entire county. County Fire Ban notices do not include the urban municipalities of Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs, Cremona and Sundre.
For information on the fire ban status in those communities please contact the respective municipal office or visit the respective municipal websites.
This requires that all outdoor fires presently burning, be extinguished and the lighting of any outdoor fires is banned.
The only exceptions currently are internal houshold fireplaces; barbeques; and AER flaring.
All current fire permits and fireworks permits remain suspended and no new fire/fireworks permits will be issued until the Complete Fire Ban has been lifted.
