A Year Later, Area Better Prepared for Fire

July 7th marks the day the evacuations began for the area surrounding the Gustafsen fire near 100 Mile House.

Al Richmond, CRD area G director, who was CRD Chair last summer, reflected on  the legacy of the event.

“It was a fast moving event, and things happened very quickly. Moving forward, I thing the public is more aware and better prepared. More things have to be done, of course. We see more people cleaning up their properties and thats a positive. Thats something everyone can do.”

Richmond says he’s thankful for all the partners and volunteers who came together last year.
