Due to the hot, dry conditions that are forecasted to continue, the Municipal District of Taber has issued a Fire Advisory within the municipal boundaries until further notice.
With the Fire Advisory in effect, the public is advised that a higher fire risk exists.
Fire Permits will continue to be issued, but we ask that you use extra caution while performing any controlled burn.
The Municipal District of Taber will continue to review this situation and consider changes to the Advisory if conditions warrant it. There is no desire to have the Advisory in place for any longer than necessary – the goal is to Advise the public of the hot, dry conditions causing the higher risk of fire, to protect persons and property, and to reduce excess costs to ratepayers.
There are currently no restrictions on open fires within our municipal borders.
The order came into effect at 12:00 midnight on June 30.
• Fire Permits will be issued without reservation but must be obtained before burning.
