FIRE BAN AND TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS ENDED FOR EASTERN MANITOBA



Manitoba Conservation advises travel restrictions and the ban on campfires are now ended in eastern Manitoba, including all parks in the Whiteshell region, and Grand Beach and Birds Hill provincial parks, due to accumulated rainfall, forecast precipitation, the time of year and higher evening humidity.

Campfires are now permitted in approved firepits in these areas. Backcountry travel is also permitted in eastern Manitoba.

Anyone living, working, camping or travelling through eastern Manitoba is still advised to use caution as portions of the region remain dry. Permits for debris burning may now be obtained from most Manitoba Conservation offices. Permits are required for agriculture burning of stubble. Burning permits will not be issued for the Falcon and West Hawk lake areas at this time.

Users of all-terrain vehicles are asked to check areas around the engine and exhaust frequently. If any debris is found, carefully remove and extinguish it. Be prepared by carrying a fire extinguisher, small axe and shovel.

Some municipalities may still have bylaws prohibiting fires. Please check with the local municipal office for any updates.

Fires can be reported to Manitoba Conservation by calling 1-800-782-0076 (toll-free). Further information is available at local Manitoba Conservation district offices.

More information on fire prevention and current fire updates is available at: www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/fire/Prevent ... ntion.html.
