Much of the region is forested land and subject to wildfires. Interface fires, where a wildfire threatens residential areas or infrastructure, pose a risk in rural and semi-rural areas and on the fringes of village and urban centres. FireSmart planning can protect your property from wildfire. Based on recent large wildfires elsewhere in British Columbia, all portions of the community are likely to be at risk or affected by smoke. 

Ask Yourself:

  • Have I made sure my property is FireSmart?
  • Can I reduce my exposure?
