Fire Advisory

May 21, 2021

Foothills County has moved to a Fire Advisory. All open fires are allowed by obtaining a burning permit found on the Foothills County Website. Citizens are also reminded that obtaining a fire permit is mandatory at all times.

Although this is not a Fire Ban or Restriction, the County asks citizens to use extra caution and be extra vigilant when burning while this Advisory is in effect. As necessary, soaking the area adjacent to the open fire pits with water is recommended.

Foothills County continues to be vigilant in our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and our commitment to ensuring the safety of staff and residents.

In response to the continued public health measures and restrictions, the County has taken additional steps to ensure compliance with provincial regulations. Enhanced cleaning and sanitization practices continue, and the number of employees who are present in the building has further been reduced.

All departments are recognized as essential services and remain fully operational. The Foothills Administration building remains open, however, the public is encouraged to contact staff by way of email or telephone in order to limit the number of people within the building at this time. Contact information for each department can be found on the Foothills County website - MD Foothills | Contact.

Updated information on the opening of our parks and recreation facilities can be found at MD Foothills | Parks & Recreation.

We remain committed to keeping our residents and staff informed as we navigate through these challenging times, and updates will be posted should additional information be made available.
