Again to all of you who volunteer for standby, call out, and
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
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.
Some testing was also done. Hopefully we did NOT disturb any afternoon naps.
The siren will be tested twice a year, once at the beginning of April and again after Thanksgiving. So be aware!
More information will be coming throughout the year, so stay tune to this page!
