The fire season in the Fort Sask area has been minimal compared to last summer, but one category is up.
One major positive this summer and fall has been the amount of rain and precipitation in the capital region.
"This year, looking at the data we have to date, fires have gone down significantly from what they were last year," said Fort Saskatchewan Fire Chief Shawn McKerry.
This year the Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department were facing a new problem.
"This year we've had a lot of cardiac arrest calls in Fort Saskatchewan," mentioned McKerry.
In cases of a life threatening medical situation, the fire department will go to back up the ambulance and provide extra assistance.
Other smaller issues they've seen include people disposing of cigarettes in plan pots (lighting the soil and debris on fire before spreading to the pot and further) and fires growing after they were left unattended.
