Risk of forest fires

A total ban is in place on starting fires outdoors.

Due to the weather conditions, the Municipality of Bagnes has decided to ban all outdoor fires until further notice.

For several weeks now there has been very little rainfall and the ground and vegetation are very dry. Additionally, MeteoSwiss has forecast only a few storms over the next few days.

As a result, the general danger posed by fires remains very high. For this reason, the decision has been made to impose a total and immediate ban on starting fires outdoors. This decision also applies to fireworks. The situation will be re-evaluated in the week preceding 1 August.

The public are asked to strictly observe the directives issued by the authorities.
