Fire bans and advisories restrict burning for the safety of residents and the community. Depending on weather and environmental conditions, the County may issue a Fire Advisory or a stricter Fire Ban. See below for descriptions of each.

When no fire ban or fire advisory is in place, fire permits can be applied for, and burning with the appropriate permitting can resume. Please remember to always use caution when dealing with fire.

You can find out when a fire ban or advisory has been declared through the Alberta Fire Bans website, the County’s Fire Ban Information Line at 403.520.6310, the Safe & Sound program, and this website.


Any person who ignites, fuels, supervises, maintains or permits an outdoor fire within the municipal boundaries of Rocky View County during a fire ban can be fined $1,000. Should the fire get out of control and emergency fire response is required, the person responsible for the fire can be charged the full firefighting costs.
