No Fireworks!

With New Years Eve right around the corner, please remember that fireworks are prohibited in Yellowhead County. Fireworks are also not permitted when recreating on crown land in Alberta.

We would also like to remind everyone that a Fire Advisory is in effect for the Yellowhead County Fire Protection area due to current and forecasted weather conditions. The lack of precipitation this season and warm temperatures have kept the snow cover at a minimum, which makes dry grass and other fuels easier to ignite and continue to burn. A wildfire can ignite easily and spread quickly under these conditions.

PLEASE DO NOT RISK UNSAFE RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES involving fire or fireworks. A small incident can quickly escalate into an out-of-control wildfire and put lives and property at risk, including firefighters and emergency response crews.

Thank you for doing your part to keep Yellowhead County safe.
