We’re in this together. Wildfire prevention can happen at home, in the backcountry, and through larger-scale fire and fuel management planning. Learn what you can do to help.
For your Home & Community
As homeowners we can take simple steps to reduce the impact of wildfire on our property and in our communities.
For the Outdoor Recreationalist
Discarded cigarette butts, campfires, hot exhaust pipes coming into contact with dry grass and vegetation, power tools (such as chainsaws), Tiki torches and even discarded glass can all ignite a wildfire.
Drones & UAVs
The operation of any aircraft not associated with fire suppression activities (including drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)) near a wildfire is illegal.
Prescribed burning is one of a number of fuel management tools and techniques that can be used to help reduce the intensity of naturally occurring wildfires while returning an integral process to the ecosystem.
Fire & Fuel Management
Fire and fuel management is a holistic approach that incorporates integrated land management, in which fire regimes and effects, values at risk, and multiple resource use activities are considered.
Community Resiliency Investment Program
The Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) Program is a new provincial program intended to reduce the risk and impact of wildfire to communities in BC through community funding and supports and priority fuel management activities on provincial Crown land.
