Res #: 24-18A
Number: 24
Year: 2018
Midterm: No
Expired: Yes
Responses Received: No
Departments: SaskPower

WHEREAS in May 2017, SaskPower announced that it would be updating its approach to fire claims to voluntarily pay reasonable firefighting costs for claims received for fires that occur after March 2017, when a fire is found to be the result of:

  • the failure of SaskPower equipment,
  • wildlife contact,
  • vegetation contact from within SaskPower’s right of way, or
  • snow/ice.


WHEREAS this is a positive development, but many municipalities and ratepayers may not be aware of this change;

BE IT RESOLVED that SaskPower communicate this message with municipalities again to bring more awareness to the change.
