Is It Illegal to Disregard a Fire Ban?
The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority wants to work with residents and visitors to keep the M.D. safe. During a fire ban, officials will emphasize compliance over enforcement, but anyone who breaks a fire ban may be subject to fines or charges if their fire causes a safety issue. This may also include covering the full costs for firefighting which can be several thousand dollars or reach into the millions of dollars if a forest fire results from burning during a fire ban.
