Strong Winds Expected: Stay Alert for Wildfires and Reduce Risks

The wildfire danger in the Grande Prairie Forest Area is HIGH. Strong and gusty winds are expected today and tomorrow, with the forecasted weather showing lower relative humidity with moderate temperatures and wind gusts up to 50 kilometres per hour.

On windy days stay on alert for wildfires and reduce the risk of starting one. Grasses and other fine fuels can ignite quickly under windy conditions. If you are operating an off-highway vehicle (OHV) use caution, clear your hot spots, and carry a collapsible bucket and shovel. Sparks from rocks hitting heavy machinery, dragging chains, and welding operations are all high-risk activities.

Report wildfires by calling 310-FIRE (3473).

Please remember there is a Fire Restriction in place for Saddle Hills County and in the Forest Protection Area surrounding the communities of Valleyview and Grande Prairie, and west of the Peace River.
