The Morinville Fire Department is issuing a fire ban which prohibits open burning, fireworks, back yard fire pits, cooking stoves in parks and BBQs using solid fuels.
With the prolonged hot, dry and windy conditions, and taking into consideration the Fire Weather Index, which has categorized our area as extreme, it has been determined that we take the necessary precautions to keep our citizens safe.
The ban will remain in effect until further notice. The Morinville Fire Department will continue to monitor conditions and the Fire Weather Index to determine the extent of the fire ban. Anyone who does not comply with the terms of the ban may be subject to the fines and charges set out by the town’s Fire Service Bylaw, Schedule A. This may also include covering costs for emergency services.
