Are you interested in FireSmart but don't know where to
start? Check out FireSmart101. This free one hour course
identifies the principles of FireSmart that you can adopt for your home.
Mitigating wildfire risk to our homes and neighborhoods is something we
should all be working towards.
During wildfire season, you are
required to have a fire permit to burn within the Forest Protection Area
(FPA), with the exception of a campfire.
Albertans can request a free fire
permit by contacting their local forestry office or using the online Fire Permit Portal.
