The Town of Shaunavon is reminding property owners of the Fire Protection Bylaw No. 2022-09 that took effect on January 1st, 2023. This bylaw states that the cost of fire prevention, suppression and emergency response services shall be charged directly to the property owners who receive the services in accordance with rates contained within the Fire Protection Bylaw.

The Town of Shaunavon is following suit with the surrounding rural municipalities who have been applying these fire call charges to property owners since the year 2002, with the formation of the Shaunavon and District Fire and Rescue over 20 years ago. Therefore, it was determined by the Town of Shaunavon that the Fire Protection Bylaw be adopted to proceed with a method of charging for fire calls that is consistent with the member rural municipalities and with a majority of other surrounding towns and rural municipalities.

Media releases, reminders and more were provided throughout 2022 to provide property owners time to ensure their policies are sufficient to meet their needs. We encourage all property owners to contact their insurance provider to discuss their policy coverages, as most policies may already include firefighter coverage.
