Due to the extremely dry conditions we are currently experiencing, The Blood Tribe Fire Department must enforce a FIRE BAN effective immediately.
FIRE BAN DEFINITION: A Fire Ban is a ban placed upon the members of the reserve (or residents of any area) that prohibits burning of anything at any time. A Fire Ban is issued dependant upon current weather conditions, crop and land dryness, and the availability of a ready water supply.
No one is permitted to burn garbage, or any other materials on the reserve. If you have questions about the Fire Ban, you may phone the business line at the Fire Hall at 737-2102 and ask to speak to the Fire Chief or his representative, but you will not be granted permission to burn, you will only be given more detailed advice about the Fire Ban and the expected duration of the Fire Ban.
