Q: What does a HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES and EXTREME or HIGH forest fire danger notice mean to me?
A: It means that anyone engaged in a HIGH RISK ACTIVITY or an INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY, must abide by the Wildfire Act and Wildfire Regulation of BC. Please read the information provided here to better understand the risks and your responsilities.
"street address" refers to your physical location at a finer level than city. E.g., "1313 Mockingbird Lane", without the city name attached.
The more specific meaning of "the address of the building at which you actually live or do business, as opposed to where you receive mail or packages", is better served with the term "physical address". Emergency services require this civic address as opposed to the address at which you have a mailbox. Your address must be verified as correct and assigned numbers posted in a highly visible manner and the access or driveway must be accessible by all manner of large emergency type vehicles to be most effective when responding to emergencies.
Fire Prevention & Education
Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871.
