The Government of Alberta issued a temporary province wide restriction on off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreational use on public lands and provincial parks is another tool the province will use to help prevent the spread of wildfires.

We feel this is a good idea considering the tinder dry conditions. With resources already stretch in much of the province we need to be diligent in not creating more fires. The Fort McMurray fire showed just how quickly a fire can get out of control.

At Ron’s Rentals all of our rental units have spark arrestors and our UTV’s and Argo’s come fitted with 10 lbs Fire Extinguishers. If you need a rental ATV, UTV, or Argo please give us a call and we can provide you a reliable unit.
