Town of Canmore

No Fire Restrictions in Place

Watch this page for the most up-to-date fire ban and advisory information for Canmore. We post fire bans and fire advisories here when they are in effect.

In Alberta, the highest wildfire hazard is from mid-April through the end of May, the time after the snow has melted but before vegetation has started growing. Last year, 71 percent of wildfires were human-caused. 

When deciding whether a fire ban is needed, Canmore Fire-Rescue considers local fire hazards, current and forecasted weather conditions, the amount of moisture in vegetation, the regional wildfire situation, and the availability of responders and equipment.

Help Prevent the Threat of Wildfire:

  • Never leave a flame unattended.
  • Completely extinguish campfires with water. Soak it, stir it, and soak it until it is cool to the touch.
  • Do not throw cigarettes on the ground. Put them out and discard in a bin.
  • 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. 
  • If you see a wildfire, report it immediately by calling 310-FIRE.
