(Cochrane, AB) – Effective 12 p.m. on April 25, 2024, The Town of Cochrane has issued a Fire Advisory. With the current dry grasses and the anticipated weather conditions, this advisory represents a moderate fire risk and will remain in effect as long as conditions remain.

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.
