SARM assumed administrative control of the provinces rat control program in early 2010. The Provincial Rat Eradication Program was established out of the belief that more could be done to address the rat problem in Saskatchewan. Working cooperatively with rural municipalities, PREP has as its goal the eradication of rats in our province. We have seen willingness amongst administrators, councillors, the PREP board and the PCOs to work together toward the goal of a rat free Saskatchewan. Continued participation will ensure that Saskatchewan can one day become rat free. Cooperation is the key.
