Radio Noise

Firesmart Info

For more much more Information -- see the

Cabin Fires:   Are You Prepared?

Do You Have a kitchen and bedroom fire extinguisher and a fire pump?

Are your extinguishers current ? Have you checked? Is it time to renew your extinguishers?

Have you set up your fire pump and tested

A minimum of a chemical extinguisher (2A 10B C rated) or a compound of water AFFF fire fighting foam extinguisher(3A 21B C rated) should be available for kitchen fires and it is recommended that a second and/or a third extinguisher be available in or near sleep quarters to aid in escaping from a cabin fire.

Fire extinguishers should be upgraded every few years - Great personal investment or gift of perhap ones life!

Do you have your fire pump set up and tested?
Do it now! Don't wait for a fire!  It will be TOO late!

Thanks to Friends, Volunteers and Contributors


Again to all of you who volunteer for standby, call out, and evacuation captains, Thank You!
Suggest to your neighbours and friends to also volunteer. Volunteers are our only source of man power help. There can be income tax benefits. You all can contribute, it can be a small or large amount, it is totally up to you.
Even if you are only at the lake for a week or two during the summer, you can help. So please join!

In the event of another fire, we are it (GLF) , there is no one else!

To be able to help fight a fire until Forestry arrive (usually several hours or a day), you must be trained and have taken the S100 course (its free with a bit your time).
It is required by the Government to be cover by Worker Compensation, as GLF works under BC Forestry.
