Fire Restriction Issued for Siksika Nation

Siksika Nation has issued a Fire Restriction due to the dry, windy, and warm conditions that exist and are forecasted. There is a very high risk of fire spread during windy conditions in any cured (dead and dry) grass fuel type, such as those that exist across the area of Siksika Nation. Due to the rapidly changing weather conditions and the fine fuel moisture content, Siksika Nation may move to a Ban with little to no notice.

A Fire Restriction prohibits the use of wood campfires on public land, but does allow wood campfires inside provincial campgrounds and private property. For a list of relevant activities and their current restriction levels, please see the notice below. And please note that fire permits may be restricted, suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.
