Fire Ban Issued for all of Saskatchewan

Released on July 2, 2021

Due to hot, dry conditions and an extreme fire risk that covers most of the province, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) has issued a provincial fire ban for Crown lands, provincial parks and the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District, effective immediately.

The fire ban includes any open fires, controlled burns and fireworks.

Many municipalities already have fire bans in place.  The SPSA encourages all municipalities to examine the fire risk in their area.

"We know that this is a popular weekend for camping and outdoor activities, but due to the extreme conditions across the province, implementing a fire ban was a necessary decision," SPSA Vice-President of Operations Steve Roberts said.  

There are currently 18 wildfires burning in the province.  To date, Saskatchewan has had 202 wildfires, which is slightly over the five-year average of 195.

Anyone who spots a wildfire can call 1-800-667-9660, dial 9-1-1 or contact their closest SPSA Forest Protection Area office.

People can find the latest fire risk maps and municipal fire ban map at www.saskatchewan.ca/fire.

Established in 2017, the SPSA is a Treasury Board Crown Corporation responsible for emergency management, Sask911, SaskAlert, the Civic Addressing Registry, wildfire management and fire safety.
