FIRE ADVISORY LIFTED
Due to the City of Beaumont receiving a sufficient amount of moisture, the Fire Advisory has now been lifted. Effective immediately, the City of Beaumont will begin processing and issuing burning permits. The City of Beaumont would like to thank all residents for their cooperation and patience during this recent Fire Advisory.

The implementation of this Fire Advisory is due to:
- drying/dry conditions throughout our community (urban and rural);
- low relative humidity levels (RH);
- Increasing temperatures; and
- reduced moisture in the foreseeable future.
A Fire Advisory is the initial step that a Municipality may take to bring residential awareness to the increasing threat of wildfires. Under a Fire Advisory residents will:
- still be permitted to have back yard fires in approved/permitted fire pits;
- still be permitted to burn if they have a fire permit that is not expired;
- still be permitted to burn in approved recreational fire pits in parks/campgrounds;
- still be permitted to use propane (liquid) fueled BBQ’s and Fire Tables; however
- No new permits will be issued or renewed until conditions improve.
If no significant changes occur and conditions continue to worsen, the next step in the prevention of fires is a Fire Restriction then a Fire Ban. From past experience and with the existing number of wildfires throughout the Province today, Fire Advisories are usually interpreted as Fire Bans by residents further assisting in reducing our local threat.
