With the right conditions Fire Embers can travel more than 2km from a wildfire and with high winds and thunder storms expected over the next few days, it is important for us to learn how to better protect our homes and take action on making them safer right now. This video outlines safe zones for your home and things to look for in order to help better protect your home. Take special note of the Zone 1 information and perform the easily achievable things like moving patio furniture, dead plants, leaves, pine needles and other debris from the area directly around your home. Everyone can do something to help protect their property from the threat of wildfire and in turn help protect their neighbours in their neighbourhood by doing the same. FOR MORE DETAILED INFORMATION AND RESOURCES ON WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOUR HOMES FROM THE THREAT OF WILDFIRE CLICK THE LINK BELOW AND GO TO THE FIRESMART WEBSITE! www.firesmartcanada.ca/resources-library/ Stay Safe!

We visited the “Smokey the Bear Museum” and gravesite in New Mexico a few years back. Awesome place!

UPDATE: The Eagle Bluff Wildfire is now estimated at 900 hectares. This increase in size is largely due to better mapping yesterday evening, but the fire did see some growth overnight as a result of the topography of the area. Small-scale hand ignition operations are planned for today on the southern edge of Gallagher Lake. This will allow the crews to remove combustible fuels between the community and the fire perimeter. Increased smoke will be visible from nearby communities. Ignition operations are highly dependent on receiving favourable weather conditions. The evacuation alert remains in place, for additional information regarding the evacuation alerts for this wildfire please contact the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen. More information can be found on our Wildfire of Note page here: ow.ly/UFHt30piwhY

At this time, we'd like to ask boaters on the northern end of Osoyoos Lake to clear the area so skimmers may safely carry out firefighting operations on the Richter Mountain wildfire (K51089).

A reminder to stay clear of the area.

Another busy night for AMFD Firefighters. Crews responded very quickly to several new fires as a result of tonight’s lightning storm. All known fires have been extinguished and crews returned to hall. ... See MoreSee Less
