Public Service Announcement
Fire restriction lifted in Edmonton
Due to precipitation and cooler weather, Edmonton Fire Rescue Services has lifted the fire restriction for the City of Edmonton, effective immediately.
Edmontonians are now able to utilize open burning permits and fireworks. Remember that all backyard fire pits must meet all requirements identified in the City’s fire pit bylaw.
The decision was based on the Fire Weather Index (FWI), which is monitored daily, taking into account weather data such as temperature, humidity, wind speeds and precipitation.
Edmonton Fire Rescue Services would like to thank the public for their cooperation and will continue to monitor the Fire Weather Index in order to determine the necessary precautions required to keep citizens and their property safe.
