Fire Smart Open House
In light of the increasing number and size of recent wildfires in BC, the Village of Clinton is looking at a proactive approach to reducing the threat of wildfires affecting properties in and around Clinton.
The Village of Clinton, the BC government with support from West Fraser Mills are introducing the ‘Fire Smart’ program to the Clinton Fire boundary area.
A public meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall to introduce the program. All residents of the area are encouraged to take advantage of this event to learn how to protect their properties.
There will be information for urban residents as well as for acreage owners on reducing the wildfire threat on forested areas of their properties. Participation in the program has the potential to reduce insurance costs in the future. Refreshments will be served.
