Wildfire Fuel Management

From 2011 to 2018, the SLRD Wildfire Fuel Management Program completed several forest fuel management prescriptions and operational treatments on crown lands in Electoral Areas A, B, and C. In 2019, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (MFLNRORD) assumed responsibility for fuel management projects on crown land.

Through the emergency program, the SLRD is still engaged in forest fuel management projects in SLRD parks and trails throughout the regional district when funding is approved. Funding for this program comes from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Community Resiliency Investment. Suitable projects are identified through each electoral areas' Community Wildfire Protection Plan to ensure a clear, consistent, transparent and inclusive process.
