Report forest fires
April 1st marks the first day of the 2020 fire season. Although some areas of the province are still snow covered, it’s important to know how to report a forest fire should you come across one.

When you discover a forest fire, make sure you take down the following details:
*   Location of the fire
*   An estimate of the flame height
*   What is burning
*   An estimate of the size of the fire

Remember, to report a forest fire located north of the French and Mattawa rivers, please dial 310-FIRE (3473). To report a forest fire south of these rivers, dial 911.
