The Listuguj Fire Department, in cooperation with the Listuguj Police Department are advising against all grass fires and are asking Listuguj residents to refrain from starting fires in your yard or anywhere in the community.
The forest fire index from The Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs for the Listuguj, Avignon Regional County Municipality region is classified as EXTREME at this time.
This advisory notice on grass fires is due to health, safety, and the environment reasons such as poor air quality, potential harm or damage to people and property and the poor effects on plant life and wildlife.
Dry conditions combined with wind make grass fires dangerous and the number of calls we have received have put a strain on our fire department in the past.
It is our priority to ensure the safety of all residents and we thank you for your support. Should you see a grass fire, call the fire department by dialing 911.
