Dry conditions in Riding Mountain National Park has caused the fire danger level to be extreme.

There won’t be a fire ban implemented but the park asks that everyone uses extra caution with campfires and other potential fire sources.

To lower the risk of a fire starting, keep campfires small and in designated pits, completely extinguish campfires by soaking it with water, stirring it, and soaking again, and dispose of cigarettes in proper ways.

Any suspected wildfires should be reported to Parks Canada Dispatch at 1-877-852-3100.
