Fire Ban lifted for Lacombe County

Thanks to the recent cooler temperatures and recent precipitation, Lacombe County has lifted its Fire Ban.

Fire permits are still required for all outdoor fires, excluding fires used for cooking or warming purposes and burning barrels. Fire permits can be requested through our iPhone app (myLacombeCounty), through our online Fire Permit Request form, over the phone, or in person.

While conditions have improved, the public is reminded to make sure all fires are completely extinguished before leaving unattended and to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly. In addition, Lacombe County and the Lacombe County Fire Services reminds the public to use caution when operating off-road vehicles or farm equipment, as hot exhaust pipes pose a fire hazard.

Please follow our website, www.lacombecounty.com, for the most current information.
