Posted on 08/11/2017

Due to warm dry conditions and forecast winds, areas of exposed cured fuels pose a significant wildfire risk. As a result, a Fire Advisory is now in effect for Saddle Hills County. Effective immediately.

Please exercise caution when conducting activities in dry cured fuels.

Open burning of heavy fuels is not recommended at this time. Please postpone any non-essential burning.

Safe Campfires are allowed.

Please make sure your campfire is completely extinguished when you leave it (Soak It, Stir It, Soak It Again).

Clear debris from hot spots on your Off-Highway Vehicle (Knock It Off).

The Advisory will remain in place until conditions improve.

If the fire hazard continues to increase, further restrictions may be implemented.

Please contact Saddle Hills County office (780) 864-3760, if you have any questions about this advisory.
