Dry conditions and a forecast calling for warmer temparatures, has prompted the RM of Hanover to implement a fire ban on Monday, effective at 5 p.m.

The municipality said in a release the ban targets intentional setting of fires in grass and brush.

Fires in enclosed backyard fire pits are permitted and must be supervised at all times, but the municipality reminded residents in the release to not start a backyard fire in the approved pits if wind velocity is in excess of 32 km/h.

No burning permits shall be issued until conditions improve. Anyone witnessing an out of control fire situation, is asked to call 911.

Anyone found guilty of starting a fire may be subject to stiff fines and penalties.

The decision follows bans already declared in the neighbouring RMs of Ste Anne and Ritchot.

Residents are asked to check up on the municipal website at www.hanovermb.ca and the five community electronic billboards for up to date municipal news and fire ban status.
