    Wildfire Safety for Victoria Day Weekend

    Campers and drivers of off-road vehicles are urged to be extra careful NOT to spark wildfires on the upcoming Victoria Day long weekend (May 15-18th). In places where the grass is brown and hasn't turned green yet, it can be very dry and/or dead; creating ideal conditions for wildfires. Fires can ignite from unattended or improperly extinguished campfires as well as poorly maintained and cleaned off-road vehicles. Please see http://bcwildfire.ca for info on fire safety
