Update: July 5, 2021
The County of Wetaskiwin Fire Advisory and Fireworks Restriction is now lifted.
June 29, 2021
Due to the dry, windy conditions and warming temperatures, the County of Wetaskiwin No. 10 Approved Fireworks Retailers will not be authorizing any new Fireworks Permits until further notice; also, currently issued Fireworks Permits are suspended.
Existing fire permits remain valid (subject to suspension or cancellation). New fire permits may be issued at the discretion of County Fire Guardians..
What is allowed:
• Safe wood campfires in campgrounds (within fire rings), backyards, or random camping areas
• Charcoal briquettes
• Portable propane fire pits
• Gas or propane stoves and barbecues
• Catalytic or infrared-style heaters
Off-Highway Vehicles can start wildfires – check frequently to ensure hotspots are free of debris, and make sure mufflers and spark arrestors are working properly.
Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished.
The Fire Advisory will remain in effect until conditions improve.
Fire officials will continue to monitor conditions, and a fire restriction or fire ban may be issued. We will update the public of any changes.
