Wildfire season officially starts March 1 and runs until October 31 each year.

As the wildfire situation in Alberta continues to evolve, residents are encouraged to assess their properties and implement FireSmart techniques to help protect their homes in the event of a wildfire.  Residents should also be prepared in case they need to evacuate from their homes. 

Individuals and families should be prepared to take care of themselves for at least 72 hours. In some situations you may be displaced for several weeks.
