Every year, about half of all forest fires are caused by people. A
discarded match, a burning cigarette butt, or an escaped campfire can
easily cause a fire that threatens the lives of people and animals,
and the forest.
- Smoking and escaped campfires are leading causes of wildfires, while
sparks caused by equipment and vehicles can also start a fire. Don't
be the cause of a wildfire!
- For information on wildfire hazards and campfire restrictions, call
the 1-888-3-FOREST fire information line, with pre-recorded updates
on wildfire locations and smoke advisories.
- To report a wildfire call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 from a cellular
- Report any suspicious activities to the RCMP - keeping our public
forests safe is everyone's responsibility.
