Town of Drumheller Issues Fire Restriction

Posted on May. 5 2023

As of May 5, 2023, the Town of Drumheller has issued a Fire Restriction.

The Town of Drumheller advises that only necessary burning should take place, and with extreme caution. Fire hazard levels within the Town and the surrounding areas are currently at a level where fire can start and grow quickly. The public is asked to ensure that all fires are attended to and completely extinguished before being left unattended.


  • Consumer fireworks
  • All burning that is not contained to a fire pit conforming to Fire Bylaw 04.07
  • All burn permits are revoked
  • Fires previously allowed by permit must be extinguished


  • Recreational fire pits that are compliant with Fire Bylaw 04.07
  • 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

There is a very high risk of fire spreading during windy conditions in any cured (dead and dry) grass fuel type, such as those that exist across the Town and the surrounding areas at the current time. Due to the rapidly changing weather conditions and the fine fuel moisture content, the Town of Drumheller may move to a Fire Ban with little to no notice.
