Hazard Reduction Burning

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry will be conducting hazard reduction burning in the Whitecourt Forest Area on May 9. These operations help remove dead and dry grass along strategic right-of-ways, to serve as fire breaks around communities.   

Smoke may be visible from nearby roadways. If you have issues with smoke please call Health Link at 811.

If you are out using an off-highway vehicle in the forested areas stop often and remove debris from your hotspots. Exhaust systems can heat up to temperatures in excess of 204 degrees Celsius - hot enough to fry an egg and start a wildfire.
