Learn to be Firesmart with Manitoba Wildfire Service!
Manitoba Conservation and Climate Wildfire Service is responsible for the prevention, detection and suppression of wildfires. The program manages all human and equipment resources needed for fighting wildfires in the province. Staff monitor weather patterns, lightning strikes, soil moisture and forest conditions to determine the probability and location of wildfires.
Manitoba’s Wildfire Service works in close cooperation with other forest fire fighting agencies and jurisdictions. Equipment and other resources are shared through the Canadian Inter Agency Forest Fire Centre and the Great Lakes Forest Fire Compact.
During the Great Outdoors Expo, they will be set up and ready to provide information on their service and about fire prevention and safety, as well as FireSmart materials for home and cottage owners.
