DO YOUR PART TO PREVENT SPRING WILDFIRES

  spread out the remaining material within the pile using a metal probe, or if necessary, heavy equipment. Dig down into the soil to make sure the fire has not burned down to the root system.
  • soak the area and ensure both heat and smoke are no longer being produced by the pile. 
  •  Roll the debris over. Using your bare hand, feel for heat while looking for steam. 
  • Off-highway vehicles can start wildfires – check frequently to ensure hot spots such as your exhaust, muffler, under the seat, wheel wells, engine and manifold on your OHV are free of debris, and ensure that your muffler and spark arrestor are working properly.

    NOTICE - NORTHWEST SPECIES AT RISK 

    Alberta’s six northwestern municipalities have come together to form the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee. The six municipalities that form the NWSAR are:

    Town of High Level
    Mackenzie County
    County of Northern Lights
    Clear Hills County
    Town of Rainbow Lake
    Town of Manning

    After learning of the Government of Alberta’s proposal to permanently protect 1.8 million hectares of land for caribou in northwest Alberta, Councillors from the area’s six municipalities leapt into action and formed the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee to ensure local voices were heard. The committee created a report for the federal and provincial governments to consider when implementing plans to protect the Woodland Caribou- which are a threatened species. The Committee wants to see protection plans be effective but also consider the socio-economic impacts to our communities, so that we can be prosperous and keep jobs here. The committee believes that the caribou can be protected without creating a provincial park and even protect them more effectively without creating a park. Through the Committee’s hard work over the past year, a socio-economic analysis, the collection of scientific data and extensive multi-stakeholder consultations, a report was created with ten specific recommendations for responsible caribou recovery.
    A strong, unified voice of municipal leaders and area residents is vital in responsible protection of all species at risk.
