Fire Advisory in effect for the Town of Cochrane as of 12 p.m.

Fire Danger Rating (advisory). Fires permitted. Use caution.

The decision to implement this Fire Advisory has been made on the current dry uncured grasses and the anticipated weather conditions.

Fire Advisory – moderate fire danger. Fire Services warns residents that a more restrictive fire ban may be coming, or that there is a short-term concern like a major wind event which may increase the fire hazard level. During a fire advisory, open fires are allowed, but residents are reminded to be extra vigilant. Soaking the area adjacent to a fire pit with water is recommended.

Permitted usage:
• Internal household fireplaces
• Solid fuel barbecues (charcoal briquettes)
• Liquid fuel barbecues/camp stoves (propane and natural gas)
• Wood pellet grills
• Fires contained within approved facilities and appliances in designated camping and recreational areas.
• Backyard fire pits (wood/propane/natural gas)
• Chimeneas or built-in fireplaces on residential homes
