Fire Ban

Todays fire rating is Ban

Current Fire Rating:Ban

A Fire Ban is in effect as of Monday, July 5, 2021 until further notice.

Due to the hot, dry conditions that exist and are forecasted to continue the Municipal District of Taber has issued a Fire Ban on all open fires within its municipal boundaries. 

Under the Fire Ban, all active fire permits are suspended. No new permits will be issued until further notice. 

Fires that are contained in IRRIGATED and SUPERVISED parks, campgrounds and backyards are exempt from the Ban. 

The Municipal District of Taber will continue to review this situation and consider changes to the Ban if conditions warrant. There is no desire to have the Ban in place for any longer than necessary - the goal is to protect persons, property, and to reduce excess costs to ratepayers. 

Burning during a Fire Ban is illegal, and fines apply. For more information view the Municipal District of Taber Fire Services Bylaw No 1956 here.

For additional information contact Jason Bullock – Director of Agricultural Services at 403-634-4429.

For insight into the types of fire bans that are issued, please view the Fire Ban Implementation Policy.
