11.01.2017 Wildfire Season Ended October 31, 2017

SEASON ENDS

Although the official wildfire season ends on October 31, a grass fire hazard can still occur in the Calgary Forest Area and the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass throughout the winter months.

SAFE CAMPFIRES

Keep your campfire away from overhanging branches and use caution during windy conditions. Please be cautious when burning or with campfires in and around areas of cured grass.

Before you leave your campfire, remember--soak it, stir it, soak it again
