Fire Services Bylaw

On Oct. 15, 2018, City Council approved a new bylaw to maintain Fire Services for the City of Airdrie. The Fire Services Bylaw (B18/2018) contains updates to specific regulations, most notably:

  • No person shall use a solid fuel-fired barbeque in a building or on a balcony of a building containing more than two Dwelling Units
  • If property owners allow propane-fueled fire pits or other heating appliances to be installed on their decks and/or balconies, those items must be installed to code requirements
  • The Alberta Fire Code requires buildings or parts of buildings undergoing construction or demolition to have a fire safety plan

For more details, please review the Bylaw in its entirety here.
