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?
Have you set up your fire pump and tested it?

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!

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

Thanks to Friends, Volunteers and Contributors

Everyear

Again to all of you who volunteer for standby and call out, 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 days), 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.
