As British Columbia is bracing for another intense wildfire season, the provincial government is urging people to prepare for more wildfires in the province and be cautious of wildfires over the Victoria Day long weekend.
Meanwhile, B.C.’s Forest Minister Doug Donaldson is asking people who are staying home during the long weekend to “FireSmart” their properties to reduce wildfire risks.
“We all need to do our part to reduce wildfire risk and keep communities safe,” Donaldson stated. “I encourage those people staying home over the long weekend to take steps to FireSmart their property.”
