Fire Ban lifted
Under the authority of The Fire Bylaw No. 2005-18, Regina Fire & Protective Services will rescind the fire ban for the City of Regina, effective today at 5 p.m.
Regina Fire & Protective Services has been monitoring the situation closely. The following conditions were determining factors:
- Conditions within the City have improved with the onset of recent precipitation and a return to cooler temperatures and higher humidity.
- The vegetation within our naturalized open spaces has been cut.
We remind citizens to remain vigilant and adhere to the requirements for the safe use of fire pits and outdoor fireplaces.
We continue to stress the importance of the careful disposal of smoker’s material in an approved container and not in flower pots, planters or plastic containers. Smoker’s material should be discarded in a metal container that is partially filled with sand or gravel. As an additional precaution, smokers should not discard materials out of vehicle windows.
Fire & Protective Services wishes to thank the citizens of Regina for their efforts in keeping our community fire safe during the fire ban and throughout the year.
