This Advisory has been put in place to encourage extreme caution in order to protect fire suppression service availability of volunteer firefighting crews and AB WildFire Resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. The current fire risk is low – moderate but can change very quickly in the Spring.
The Town of Fairview has issued a Fire Restriction. This means that fires will only be allowed within an APPROVED Fire Pit or receptacle. Open burning will not be allowed. If you do not have an approved permit, you must contact the Town Office to arrange for an inspection by the Fire Chief. Failure to do this may result in a fine as it is a breach of Town Bylaw.
Fire Services warns residents that a fire restriction or ban may be coming if conditions do not improve. Residents are asked to be extra vigilant during this time.
