With the recent moisture, Ponoka County, including the Town of Rimbey, have lifted their fire advisory effective today. Open burn permits will once again be issued.
Always remember to be fire smart and use extreme caution while using your fire pits, burn barrels. In a split second an “under control” fire can take a turn for the worse. Before and during your fire, be aware of the current weather conditions and re-evaluate if the weather changes. Always extinguish your fire if the change in weather increases the hazard of your fire. We thank you for being safe!
