Fire Hazard Abatement and the Shovel Lake Wildfire

In October 2018, the Board received a complaint from a member of the BC Wildfire Service team that managed the Shovel Lake wildfire, near Fraser Lake.

The Board investigated whether licensees assessed and abated the fire hazard as required by the Wildfire Act.
