Welcome to the R.M. of Mervin No. 499 Website
FIRE BAN IN EFFECT FOR THE R.M. of MERVIN
Effective May 1, 2018, the R.M. of Mervin No. 499 has issued a full fire ban municipality wide. There shall be no open fires due to the very dry conditions with low humidity. The ban continues until such time that conditions improve and the R.M. Council determines the ban can be lifted. Our website is updated whenever a ban is put in effect or lifted.
A fire ban includes: fireworks, burning barrels, smudge, recreational fires and propane fire pits with an open flame higher than 2 inches. When fires burn out of control in our R.M., extra demand is placed on staff and our volunteer fire fighters, creating large costs. The municipality will aggressively pursue recovery from individuals who light fires during a ban.
Permitted Uses Include:
- Barbeques (propane, gas, briquette & wood pellets)
- Tabletop Propane heaters and propane heaters with a maximum flame height of 2 inches
- Patio heaters
- Completely enclosed wood pellet fueled fire pits
Should you have any questions regarding a fire ban, please contact our office.
On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth. (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)
The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.
