2015 Wildfire Season Review

The 2015 fire season was extraordinary in terms of wildfire conditions, number of wildfires, number of hectares burned, and expenditures. A review was completed of the extreme fire season, the Province’s wildfire management program, and its response to the recommendations provided in the Flat Top Complex Wildfire Review Committee Final Report. The findings are provided in two reports (summary and detailed).

The Province is implementing initiatives that respond to the recommendations provided in the reports, and remains committed to continual improvement in order to reduce the risk of wildfires to Albertans, communities, natural resources, and other values.
