SPSA Lifts Fire Ban for Most of East Central Saskatchewan

Released on October 14, 2021

Due to improved weather conditions, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is lifting the fire ban for all provincial Crown lands, including provincial parks located within the fire ban area, for most of east-central Saskatchewan, effective immediately.

The fire ban included any open fires, controlled burns and fireworks within all areas:

  • South of Highway #106 from the Manitoba border to Highway #55;
  • South of Highway #55 from Highway #106 to Prince Albert;
  • East of Highway #2 from Prince Albert to Highway #5; and
  • North of Highway #5 to the Manitoba border.

The ban had also included all land within 4.5 km of the provincial forest boundary.

The lifting of these restrictions does not include fire bans that parks, municipalities or rural municipalities may have already implemented. The SPSA continues to encourage all municipalities to examine the fire risk in their local area and reminds the public to practice fire safety.

Residents and visitors can find a copy of the fire ban order, the latest fire risk maps and a municipal fire ban map at saskpublicsafety.ca. People are encouraged to visit tourismsaskatchewan.com for information about fire restrictions within all provincial parks.

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

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.
