Fuel management work started in Kimberley

Residents will see smoke over next few months; please obey trail notifications

Over the next couple of months, smoke may be visible from the area of the Nature Park, the Nordic Park and Forest Crowne areas as the City of Kimberley Fire Department gets underway with this year’s Wildfire Fuels Management program.

Ideal burning conditions are immediately after the snow has melted before the grass greens up.

These are not the funds the City has applied for from the Community Resilience Investment Program for major fuel management work. Fire Chief Rick Prasad says they are still in the queue for those funds. This work is being paid for by previously approved grants.

There are currently six different projects underway in these areas. Crews are reducing tree density, chipping and burning piles. The Fire Department asks that you pay attention to any signage and notices posted on the trails.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Fire Department at 250-427-4114 or email
