Nearly two months after it was issued, Alberta Health Services has lifted its precautionary air quality advisory. Much of the province was plagued by smoky skies in the late summer due to the second worst wildfire season on record for British Columbia.
“Wildfires that variably impacted air quality in Alberta, are no longer a threat to air quality at this time,” AHS says in a release.
Both the County of Grande Prairie and the Grande Prairie Forest Area were under fire advisories in August, but both have since been lifted. Wildfire season runs until the end of October, meaning burn permits are still needed.
