Danger Class – BC Wildfire Service – Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource

Hello everyone. Our area is now on early shift. That means 1pm shutdown for all “high risk” activities, followed by a 2 hour fire watch. I have included a link to the Danger Class rating page. It shows a list of weather stations throughout BC. We fall under the Cedar weather station. This does not stop you from mowing your lawns, or splitting your firewood. Though firewood should be done on the road and not in the slash. Please practice common sense and err on the side of caution. There has already been a fire on one of the neighbouring islands that the BCFS dealt with recently. This wind is drying out our island in a hurry, and if a fire started, this wind would make things much more difficult to deal with. Once again, it’s a good time to dust off your firefighting equipment. Hopefully it will not be needed.

I will see you all at the annual pancake breakfast this May long weekend at Dodd Narrows.
