Fire Restriction Lifted

Edson, Alberta, June 3rd, 2015 – The fire restriction put in place by the Town of Edson is now lifted. Edson Fire Chief Al Schram feels the conditions have improved enough to remove all restrictions put in place in late May.

Schram adds, while the fire risk has been reduced, it’s still important to be cautious when doing any type of burning within the Town limits. It’s important to keep back yard fires at a manageable size, and if residents have any questions or concerns they’re encouraged to contact the Edson Fire Department at 780-723-3178.
