Jan – Feb 2017
While this past winter seems to have been unusually long, spring and the hot days of summer will be upon us before we know it, bringing with it the risk of forest fires. Unfortunately wildfires have become a reality in BC that we face each summer. Our forests and wildlands cover over 94 million hectares with approximately 2,000 wildfires occurring each year. Many of our communities feel threatened with this high occurrence of wildfires around the province, particularly those in rural areas.
