Wildland fires are a major concern and affect many people long after the fire is extinguished. The costs associated with fighting such fires and the resources used further affect residents of the County overall, which can delay other projects. Parkland RCMP worked in partnership with Parkland County Fire Department, Sturgeon County Fire Department, Alberta Forestry crimes and Morinville RCMP in this multi-jurisdiction investigation.
