WHEREAS Municipalities can pass a bylaw for implementing Fire Bans within a municipality when fire hazard conditions arise; and
WHEREAS when fire bans are implemented in Rural Municipalities to protect its citizens and property, by not implementing fire bans in neighboring forests or Provincial Parks, it puts the citizens in the Rural Municipality at an unnecessary risk.
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to implement Fire Bans in specific areas where the surrounding municipality has implemented a Fire Ban due to the area being under extreme fire hazard in order to protect citizens.
