Following the announcement of a province-wide fire ban by the Provincial Government, The Town of Edson is instituting the same ban effective immediately.
The fire ban prohibits all open fires, including campfires in campgrounds or backcountry and random camping areas. This includes charcoal briquettes. Portable propane fire pits and gas or propane stoves and barbeques designed for cooking or heating are allowed. All fire permits are suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.
The situation will be reviewed as conditions change.
