Fire Bans And Advisories In Effect Across The Province
Southern Alberta: Dry conditions and winds between 70 and 80 K have pushed the fire hazard to
extreme levels, Sunday and Monday.
Environment ad Sustainable Resource Development is warning Albertans to take
extreme caution. If a wildfire were to occur, especially in grassy ares, it could cause
uncontrollable spread, making it difficult for fire fighters to contain.
All permits withing the Forest protection Area of Alberta have been cancelled
and no new permits will be issued. All burning of outside campfires should be extinguished. Environment and Sustainable Resource Development say wildfires at this time of year are predominantly human-caused
and 100 percent preventable.
