Province-wide fire ban lifted in Saskatchewan

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency is lifting the provincial fire ban, put in place since July 2nd.

The ban has applied to all Crown lands, provincial parks and the Northern Administration District.

The ban is being lifted due to recent rainfall and cooler weather.

Some municipalities continue to experience a high fire risk and may choose to keep their fire bans in place.

The public safety agency encourages all municipalities to examine the fire risk in their area, and reminds the public to practice fire safety.

The latest fire risk maps and municipal fire ban map is on the internet at

It shows 158 rural municipalities with fire bans, including most of the western third of the grainbelt, across the northern grainbelt, in the northeast, and a few near the U.S. border.
