[ARCHIVED] Wildfire Danger Level for May 11th - Moderate

Wildfire Danger- Moderate

The rain received late last week and cooler temperatures  this weekend have brought down the wildfire danger. The wildfire danger is currently MODERATE for the Slave Lake Forest Area. 

The Fire Ban and OHV Restriction remain in effect for the Slave Lake Forest Protect Area. Implementing a Fire Ban and OHV Restriction are part of a number of actions the department has introduced to help mitigate wildfire risks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Taking action in advance to reduce the number of human-caused wildfires will allow Alberta Wildfire to make the best possible use of resources when the availability of firefighters could be reduced because of the pandemic.

Please remember that the Town of Slave Lake is currently not under a fire ban. Residents are allowed to have back yard fires in fire pits. 

Firefighters appreciate your cooperation with these measures and your efforts to prevent human-caused wildfires.
