In 2012 the Regional District of East Kootenay hired B.A. Blackwell & Associates to develop a region-wide Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). The intent of the CWPP was to provide the RDEK with a high-level overview of wildfire risk in the region, which would also be used as a guiding document for any proposed wildfire risk mitigation or prevention efforts. The CWPP is comprised of a Regional Summary and Implementation Plan, supplemented with more specific plans for each Electoral Area in the regional district.
If you have any questions specifically about these documents or other wildfire prevention issues, please contact Travis Abbey, RDEK Emergency Services Coordinator at 250-489-2791.
