Sask. government urges residents and farmers to be cautious to avoid spring wildfires

The Saskatchewan government is urging residents and farmers to take extra precaution to prevent wildfires this spring during the COVID-19 pandemic
The acting vice president of operations for the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency, Steve Roberts, is urging farmers to practice safe burning and follow all fire bans.
Roberts says pre-notifying his office about a controlled burn will prevent accidental dispatch of a fire crew to the scene.
So far, Roberts says the fire hazard rating is low but warm dry weather raises the threat quickly.
