We also have a fire prevention officer who delivers public education programs throughout the municipality. All firefighters train under the direction of the Hanover Training Officer, working with six certified instructors.

Fire BansWhen conditions merit, the RM of Hanover will issue fire prevention bans for the municipality. Fire bans will be posted on the RM of Hanover website, social media channels, and shared on local media. Residents are asked to adhere to all fire bans issued to ensure the safety of people and property.
Residents should only use acceptable fire pits when having an open fire. Fire pits must be enclosed on all sides, made of non-combustible material, and be a minimum of 12" in height or depth. The surrounding ground area should also be maintained and kept free of combustibles that could contribute to fire spread.
