UPDATE: Fire ban in effect for Red Deer

Officials issue City-wide ban due to dry conditions

With the recent rainfall and air quality at an acceptable level, the City of Red Deer is lifting the city-wide fire ban effective immediately. The ban was put on earlier this month.

Although the fire ban is lifted, all citizens are reminded to use their fire pits safely. See the Fire Permit Bylaw for more information about proper fire pit construction and use.

Within City parks, only designated fire pit use is permitted as per the Parks and Public Facilities Bylaw 3255/2000.

Emergency Services thanks everyone for their cooperation during the fire ban.
