A Fire Ban has been issued for the Municipal District of Pincher Creek
We are eperiencing a warm, windy, and dry fall. These conditions are predicted to continue. The fuel continues to cure making it more available to burn. No new permits will be issued until conditions improve. Any fire permits for projects (debris piles, etc.) are cancelled. Use of permitted fire pits are still allowed. We use extreme caution and call 911 immediately if a fire starts.Remember permits are required 12 months/ year for all types of burning.
Pincher Creek Emergency Services has a strong tradition for serving and protecting our community for over 100 years. In those 100 years we’ve witnessed the evolution of the fire truck from the bucket brigade, to the horse and wagon, to the fire trucks as we know them today. We have seen our medical response grow and blossom to the advanced life support care we offer to those in need. Through it all we have continued to rely on the strong men and women of our community willing to serve selflessly to protect their neighbors.
