Reduce the hazard of wildfire to your home by taking preventative steps found in the BC FireSmart manual. You may pick up a copy at the Village office.
The Village is also taking steps to prepare for wildfire. Cumberland Fire Rescue is now preparing a “structural protection unit” trailer to help protect residential areas in case of a wildfire in the Cumberland forests. These units are deployed during an interface fire. They contain equipment and supplies to dampen roofs and areas around structures in order to prevent sparks or embers from igniting structural fires. These trailer units are easily moved anywhere in the community.
Cumberland Fire Rescue volunteers are also continuing their wildfire training.
Visit the Fire Hall on Village Market Day on May 16, 2015 to find out more about the “structural protection unit”.
