FireSmart debris chipping days open to RDKS residents
Posted on 07/17/2021

RDKS residents are encouraged to attend local FireSmart Canada neighbourhood debris chipping days over the next two weeks.

The dates and locations are as follows:
- Copper Estates: Monday, July 19
- North Terrace: Monday, July 26
- Upper Thornhill: Monday, July 26
- Kleanza/Usk/Gossen: Tuesday, Aug. 3

We recommend completing a FireSmart assessment with a qualified local FireSmart representative to help you identify changes that can be done to reduce your home’s risk from wildfire but it is not required to take advantage of the chipping events.

To be included in the debris chipping day, and to request a FireSmart Assessment, please email: planning@rdks.bc.ca or call: 250-615-6100.

FireSmart Canada leads the development of resources and programs designed to empower the public and increase neighbourhood resilience to wildfire across Canada.
