Town of Drumheller issues district wide fire ban

Due to extremely dry conditions the Town of Drumheller in its capacity as Local Fire Authority and pursuant to the Town of Drumheller Fire Bylaw 04-07 is issuing a fire ban with respect to open air fires.

Open air fires include fires for the burning of weeds, grass, leaves; fires related to recreation uses in non-approved containers; and the burning of coal, straw and/or other materials.  This fire ban also includes fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, propane fire pits and stationary barbecues that burn combustible materials (i.e. briquettes).
Natural gas and propane barbecues are not affected by this fire ban.
The fire ban takes effect Friday May 29 2009 at 6:00am and will remain in effect until further notice.  This fire ban is for all properties contained within the Municipal Boundaries of the Town of Drumheller.
