BC Wildfire Information
Wildfire Fire Risk Mitigation and Wildfire Status
With increased wildfire activity in the past several years it is important for all property owners to be aware of debris hazards and apply Fire Smart practises on their land . Wildfires are a scary emergency event in any area where homes, farms or ranches are threatened. Natural or human caused fires are a reality of living amongst massive mature boreal forests. Fires are crucial to large scale forest renewal, they clean up debris fuel, release valuable nutrients, open the forest canopy to sunlight, and open certain pine cones that require heat of fire to germinate.
The Provincial Government through the BC Wildfire Service operates a sophisticated network of trained firefighters, airplanes, helicopters and equipment which is quickly deployed into new wildfire starts that could threaten structures and private land.
