    Title:All-terrain vehicles as a cause of fire ignition in Alberta forests
 
    Year:2002
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Greg Baxter (Lead)
 
    Abstract:This study was initiated upon the request of Alberta Environmental Protection to
investigate the relationship between all terrain vehicle (ATVs) and fire ignition within
Alberta’s forests. The report summarizes the use of ATVs in Alberta and the specific
causes of wildfires associated with these vehicles, describes fire history from 1990 to
2002, reports on other agencies’ strategies to lower the probability of ATV-caused fires in
forested areas, and makes recommendations for Alberta.
