Thank-you Shauna

The PLVFD would like to thank you for your efforts in this year’s Paint Lake Provincial Park’s Cottage Structure and Site Hazard Assessment, as part of the Fire Smart Program. The PLVFD members were pleased to accompany you and learn where some of the fire hazards are. We have received many positive comments as a result of this work, and will begin strategies to reduce those hazards, where possible. We have also received questions about some of the bulk propane tanks locations close to structures.

We live in an urban/forest interface by choice. More collaborative efforts are required with cottagers to reduce any existing fire hazards. Thinning the spruce forest was discussed with you in some priority zones. Unfortunately, it was once difficult to cut down any trees, which have now become older mature trees with limited life times, and as a result, fire hazards. Mitigation is the hardest pill to swallow for cottagers who like forest canopies. We also discovered that some of the access roads are too narrow for fire trucks, which is proven by the rubs on the tree bark.

Thank you for your genuine efforts, even in the poor weather. Don’t be a stranger to the PLVFD.
