Forest Fires

In order to prepare your home and property for the possibility of an encroaching forest fire, take some time to evaluate your surroundings with the Home and Site Hazard Checklist (PDF) prepared by the BC Forest Service Protection Program. Protect your home during forest fire season by learning how to take the necessary steps to mitigate the risk of a fire approaching your home.

Emergency notices about forest fires affecting the Nelson area can be found on the Regional District of Central Kootenays website and Wildfire BC.
