Sturgeon County Fire Restriction – Lifted
Effective 1000 am, June 11, 2019 Sturgeon County, which includes the Town of Legal, has lifted its “Fire Restriction”. All previous fire permits that were issued that have not expired are re-instated. County residents wishing to obtain a new fire permit can do so by contacting or attending the Sturgeon County Protective Services Building, Sturgeon County Main Office or from their local Fire Guardian/Councillor.
As the County’s on-line fire permitting system remains unavailable, residents are asked to be patient when applying for fire/firework permits. Requests received by phone, fax and email will be processed in the order they are received. Staff’s goal is to review and approve all permit applications within two (2) business days.
Although the “Fire Restriction” has been lifted Sturgeon County Protective Services urges everyone to use extreme caution, follow permit conditions and when working or driving OHV’s in grassy areas, be mindful of hot exhaust and keep vehicles clean and free of debris as smoldering debris can fall off and start fires.
For any further inquires contact 780-939-8400
Note: The lifting of this Fire Restriction also applies to the Towns of Bon Accord, Legal and Redwater
