The fire advisory has been lifted due to recent precipitation and forecasted weather for the Slave Lake Forest Area.
New fire permits will be issued if safe burning conditions can be met.
From now until October 31st, a fire permit is required for any burning, except a campfire, in the Forest Protection Area of Alberta.
To request your free fire permit call your local Agriculture and Forestry office.

Fire permits help us to track what is burning on the landscape. If you're burning without a fire permit or outside fire permit conditions, your fire is considered a wildfire.
By getting a permit you help keep our firefighters free to fight real wildfires instead of responding to the smoke in your backyard.
