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.  

WILLIAMS LAKE, BC - May 15, 2018 - The Ts^ilhqot’in Nation welcomes some of the recommendations released last week by the BC Flood and Wildfire Review, but remains disappointed by the lack of opportunity for involvement in the process and outstanding concerns over the rushed timelines.  Ts^ilhqot’in have shown significant leadership in this area.

Fed Report Says B.C. Falling Short on Meeting Climate Change Challenges

It’s been an animated year so far for B.C. forestry conferences. The TLA annual convention was well attended again. The 2019 ABCFP conference was sold out weeks in advance. And the WFCA event at the end of January had the largest attendance ever. For those of us who organize these things we like to think it’s our programs that are so attractive. But there’s likely something else drawing people together lately in such strength.
