Cariboo Regional District post, October 18/24 …

We’ll be starting a wildfire risk reduction project in the 108 Mile Greenbelt this Friday, which will continue for several weeks. During this time, the 108 Greenbelt walking trails will be closed to maintain public safety.

Contract crews will be working through the Donlesqua Road area, then Kallum / Thompson Area before finishing in the Canium / Smith area. A map is provided below showing the project areas.

Questions about the project can be directed to the Community Services Department at 250-392-3351 or by email to mailbox@cariboord.ca

Controlled Burns in the 108

The 108 Mile Ranch VFD will be conducting small controlled burns throughout 108 Greenbelt over the next several weeks to help prevent wildfires. The controlled burns will be done mainly on Tuesday evenings and incorporated with the VFD’s training nights.  Thank you to the firefighters for giving of their time to keep our communities safe. Check out the newest addition to the 108 fleet – Tender 12!
