(Red Deer, Alberta)

With the recent rainfall, The City of Red Deer is lifting the city-wide fire ban effective immediately.

Although the fire ban is lifted, all citizens need to be safety conscious when using back yard fire pits, barbeques, and other sources of ignition including smoking material. Please see the Fire Permit Bylaw for more information about proper fire pit construction and use.

Within City parks, only designated fire pit use is permitted as per the Parks and Public Facilities Bylaw 3255/2000.

We thank everyone for their cooperation during the fire ban.
