As we move forward through the forest fire season we need to continue to be cautious with our actions and take the necessary steps to avoid or reduce activities that have the potential to produce sparks.
With the changing weather, we are no longer prohibiting high risk activities within the village limits of New Denver and Silverton and instead recommending avoiding high risk activities including activities that can produce a spark and is done in a combustible area such as on or near the forest floor or grassy area. If you choose to carry out a high risk activity please proceed with caution and be prepared with water available.
To report a wildfire/irresponsible behaviour call 1 800 663-5555 or (*5555 from a cell phone) as soon as possible!
If the situation is imminently threatening a structure or someone is injured and requiring assistance please call 911 immediately.
A friendly reminder that calling local members BEFORE calling the appropriate emergency line can slow our response.
