Our region will experience drier summers in the coming years as a result of climate change, increasing the risk for fires. Extended warm, dry weather conditions increase the possibility of wildfire activity.

Preparing for Wildfires

Safe Outdoor Recreation 

Everyone should be extra cautious and mindful when enjoying outdoor summer activities. If you are planning to hike, camp or participate in other back country activities, be sure to check the latest information on any travel restrictions and fire bans.

  • Know the fire danger rating before heading out.
  • Make sure your campfire is completely extinguished and the embers are cold before leaving your campsite.
  • Ensure cigarette butts are put out properly in an ashtray and not tossed away carelessly.

Homeowner Preparedness 

If you live in or near a forested area, or in an interface zone, make sure your home is protected by visiting British Columbia FireSmart for Homeowner Tools to help make your home and neighbourhood more wildfire resilient.
