Peace River Forested Area Fire Ban and OHV Restrictions

The Government of Alberta has instituted a fire ban and OHV restriction within the forest protection areas of Alberta. This does not apply to the Town of Fairview, however it does apply to areas outside of the Town limits. For details on Alberta’s fire bans, including the map please visit

The Town of Fairview has NOT issued a fire ban or fire restriction within Town limits. That means that backyard fires and BBQ’s ARE permitted, however, they must be contained within an approved fire pit that has been inspected by the Fire Chief. Enough water should be kept on hand to douse the fire if needed. The fire should be supervised at all times and completely extinguished (cool to the touch) before leaving the fire. Only cured wood should be burnt, no green or wet wood or plants, treated or painted wood, or garbage. To obtain a fire pit inspection please contact the Town Office to arrange a purchase your certification, 780-835-5461.

If the Town were to institute a ban or restriction we would notify residents by posting the news release on our website, sharing the details on social media and through local media outlets.
