The County of St. Paul would like to stress that landowners who are issued Fire Permits, must contact the Bonnyville 911 Dispatch Service prior to igniting their fire at 780-826-7446.
All approved fires by Permit are subject to Provincial or local Fire Bans, declared upon the threat of a fire hazard to the citizens or property within the boundaries of the County of St. Paul.
Fires must be attended at all times and should be completely extinguished before they are left unattended. County residents with burn barrels are reminded that they can be a problem in spring conditions and a spark-arresting screen must be in place.
Any brush piles that were ignited over the winter, should be checked to ensure that they are completely extinguished and that there is no danger of a ground fire starting.
