LLVFDS Update for Aug. 3

Fire fighting continued again today particularly with grass fires in the Lower Valley. LLVFD, Wildfire Protection, Fire Commissioner’s Office as well as Pender Island FD, Cowichan Bay FD, Sooke FD and Victoria FD are all on scene.

Wildfire Protection continues to firebreak the east end of the lake from Marigold on.

We are preparing LLVFD “Returning to Home” and “LLVFD Deployment Post Wildfire” plans. We still are of the opinion it will be 1-2 weeks before the area is reopened by the appropriate authorities. These plans will be posted once they have been finalized.

If people want to do pre reading the TNRD document “Information for Returning Residents”, found on the TNRD website is an excellent resource.
