Wildfire Fuel Management

The BC Ministry of Forest assumes responsibility for fuel management projects on crown land within the SLRD.

The Crown Land Wildfire Risk Reduction (CLWRR) program is administered through the Ministry of Forests in collaboration with the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS), Natural Resource Regions and Districts, BC Parks, and Mountain Resorts Branch. Funding for this program comes from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Community Resiliency Investment

Suitable projects within the SLRD are identified through each electoral areas' Community Wildfire Resiliency Plan to ensure a clear, consistent, transparent and inclusive process.
