Current Information

THE PAS FIRE DEPARTMENT

Due to the current condition of high fire danger caused by dry surface fuels, the Town of the Pas and Rural Municipality of Kelsey (including Wanless) are implementing a temporary fire ban.

Effective at 12:00 p.m. (NOON) on Thursday, May 21st, 2015 and until further notice, all open burning, including fire pits, campfires and fireworks, will be prohibited in the Town of the Pas and Rural Municipality of Kelsey. This open burning ban is in effect to protect public safety and to limit the risk of person-caused fires.

This ban does not restrict fires in cooking stoves using gas, propane or briquettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating (providing the flame height does not exceed 15 centimetres) but does restrict fires in portable wood burning fireplaces or campfires.

Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, will be issues a ticket. Anyone who causes a fire through arson or recklessness will also be held accountable for associated fire fighting costs.
