Calgary Forest Area - Fire Restriction & Wildfire Danger Update September 6, 2023

Wildfire Danger Moderate 2021

The entire MD of Bighorn, including all hamlets, is in the Calgary Forest Area of the Forest Protection Area. 

The average wildfire danger across the Calgary Forest Area (CFA) is MODERATE. Cooler conditions have persisted with reasonable precipitation across the area. As we transition into fall conditions, the cooler temperatures and shorter days will be a welcome change from a wildfire perspective. Finer fuels, however will cure, become very dry and become a volatile fuel over the coming weeks. 

The FIRE ADVISORY that had been in effect in the CFA was lifted today as of 10:00 A.M. Fire permits are once again being issued. 

Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished. If you see a wildfire, report it immediately by calling 310-FIRE.
