Fire Ban in Effect


The Municipal District of Wainwright has issued a “Fire Ban” effective immediately due to the dry conditions. This “Fire Ban” applies to all rural residences and hamlets within M.D. boundaries.

The current “Fire Ban” does not include small recreational fires (such as small contained fire pits for cooking or warming purposes), or charcoal barbecues. The M.D. encourages all residents to use the utmost caution and care with these types of fires during these dry conditions.

The M.D. will not be issuing any fire permits while the ban is in place and all current fire permits are hereby suspended and permit holders are ordered to check their fires and ensure the fire is extinguished completely.

The “Fire Ban” will be in effect until notification is otherwise provided. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the M.D. of Wainwright Office at (780) 842-4454.
