In recent years, a new priority in fire protection has emerged in British Columbia (B.C.). "Structure protection trailer units have been put in service by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) and other jurisdictions. Structure Protection Unit are used to protect homes, commercial buildings and all structures threatened by Wildland fires," said Jake Jacobson of Wildwood Resources Ltd. in Salmon Arm, B.C..
      Jacobson says the province has several Structure Protection semi-trailers that are dispatched quickly with trained personnel to communities that are threatened by a wildfire.
