Hunting season is upon us!
Due to extremely dry conditions throughout the province, fire risk increases. Hunters are reminded to take extra precautions during hunting season:
Carry a fire extinguisher in your vehicle.
Talk to landowners before going on their land.
Avoid unnecessary vehicle idling.
Walk whenever possible.
Stay on existing trails.
Approximately 50 per cent of all wildfires are caused by people.
Keep your vehicle out of tall grass – stick to roads and trails. Mufflers and other parts can get hot enough to start a fire.
When setting up your camp, pick an area free of tall grass.
Seek landowner permission before accessing private lands, whether they are posted or not.
Be prepared, carry a fire extinguisher, shovel, or other tools.
