Fuel Prescription Program
July 4, 2018
Starting on July 5th and continuing intermittently into September, field crews will be in the forests surrounding town. Crews will be on municipal and Crown land close to private land, assessing the wildfire and fuels hazard and completing detailed site assessments. These assessments will be used to complete fuels management prescriptions to reduce the wildfire threat to the community in the wildland urban interface.
Crews will be wearing high-visibility vests, carrying tablets, and may be hanging ribbon / flagging. The flagging is to outline treatment area boundaries, stand data plots, or identify values on the landbase.
This project is funded through the province and the City to ensure long-term wildfire mitigation around the community.
The City will hold stakeholder and community consultation processes through the prescription development process.
