LLVFDS Update for Aug. 9

LLVFD, Cherry Creek FD, Burnaby FD, Armstrong FD, Coombs FD, Ferndale FD, BC Wildfire, BC Fire Commissioners Office and Alberta Wildfire are all on scene dealing with hotspots and structure protection.

The controlled burns at the lake are nearing successful completion with a day or two of mop up left.

Visibility at the lake is very poor making driving difficult, even at slow speeds.

TNRD were assisted by LLVFD today with the examination of safe/unsafe building locations.

The cattle at the east end of the lake were transported out to a safer area near Kamloops today.

BC Wildfire staff have mentioned that when people return to the lake it is a good idea to travel in slowly the first time with somebody else in the vehicle and talk over the things that you are seeing and feeling. This sounds like good advice for when we all do return although we still feel that it will be a week or two.
