Fire Advisory in Effect for Drumheller

Posted on Apr. 24 2023

Until further notice, a fire advisory is now in effect for the Town of Drumheller as of Tuesday, April 25, 2023.

Due to the current warming weather trends and dry, windy conditions, a heightened fire risk exists. This advisory is in pursuit of the Town of Drumheller’s Fire Bylaw 04.07.

Please note the following under this advisory:


  • Any burning without a valid fire permit
  • Consumer fireworks


  • Campfires and fire pits at commercial campgrounds
  • Backyard residential firepits compliant with the Bylaw
  • Natural gas and propane fire pits that are CSA approved or ULC certified
  • Natural gas, propane, electric stoves, barbecues, and smokers that are CSA approved or ULC certified
  • Solid Fuelled Barbecue appliances, where the primary source of fuel consists of charcoal, briquettes, or wood
  • Catalytic or infrared style heaters that are CSA approved or ULC certified

The risk of fire spreading with these dry and windy conditions is high. The Town of Drumheller is continually monitoring weather and ground conditions and, should conditions remain unchanged or deteriorate, it may be necessary to enact a fire ban for public safety.
