City of Calgary Issues Fire Advisory
Due to the fire conditions throughout the Province and increased smoke in the area, reducing visibility and air quality, a Fire Advisory has been issued for the City of Calgary. Citizens are asked to use extra caution and avoid the use of open flames, fire pits and campfires whenever possible. The current fire conditions in the Calgary area are considered moderate but may change as the warm, windy conditions continue with limited precipitation expected. Please monitor https://albertafirebans.ca/ for current restrictions.
“We ask that everyone be vigilant when disposing of smoking materials and when using any outdoor flames,” said City of Calgary Fire Marshal Glenn Baxter. Remember to always call 9-1-1 to report a fire.
If conditions change, the City may move to a Fire Restriction or Fire Ban as needed. Smoke from wildfires can fluctuate quickly and vary across localized areas. Further information on air quality is available at https://airquality.alberta.ca/map
