Lacombe Fire Dept clarification on fire ban
Lacombe, Alberta (September 6, 2017) – Residents are advised that Lacombe County has issued a fire ban, effective September 6, 2017. Under this ban no new fire permits will be issued and existing permits are cancelled.
While this ban affects all Lacombe County residents, it does not affect residents in the City of Lacombe.
The Lacombe Fire Department recognizes the dry conditions within the city limits, but it is our belief that adherence to section 13 of the City of Lacombe’s Fire Services Bylaw 389 (http://www.lacombe.ca/home/showdocument?id=1923) is sufficient to keep the risk low and allow our citizens to continue enjoying backyard fires in their regulation-compliant fire pits.
As always, we suggest that residents use caution when having a fire, and ask that all fires remain attended at all times and are in compliance with Bylaw 389.
For more information, please contact the Lacombe Fire Department at (403)782-1230.
