For large fires such as bonfires, thawing fires, or fires required for other reasons, a burn permit must be obtained from Okotoks Fire Services. These fires must still use clean and dry burning materials.
Please note that even with a burn permit, fires cannot be lit or continue to burn if winds exceed 30 km/hour nor do permits provided. For permits please contact Okotoks Fire Services 403-938-4066.
The town may ban all fires if conditions become dry enough. Contact the Okotoks Fire Department at 403-938-4066 if you have any doubts.
The permits and bylaw in relation to fire apply only to the Town of Okotoks. For information on burning in the MD of Foothills, see their website.
