Fire Ban Re-instated
Effective immediately Ponoka County, including the Town of Rimbey and Summer Village of Parkland Beach have instituted a Full Fire Ban due to the lack of moisture, on-going extreme fire hazard and forecasted warm windy conditions. No new open fire permits will be issued and existing permits are hereby suspended.
The County-wide fire ban includes anything that produces an open flame such as burning barrels, backyard fire pits/rings, fireworks, etc. However, at present, the ban does not apply to gas fuelled equipment such as a propane barbecue. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.
We thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our municipality safe!
