Last night we witnessed the Tulameen Volunteer Fire Department in action here. They were burning off the grass on the old school ground along the highway. This greatly reduces the chance of a fire starting there during the summer. We are lucky to have this service available.
This being the time of year for cleaning up ones yard, some will want to have a fire. In this area you may contact the fire department to get a Burning Permit Application Form and Open Air Burning Permit. Contact information – (250)295.6688 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is more information on the RDOS site. §
