The Wildfire Information Expo is an opportunity to celebrate our community spirit as we continue to support each other as we enter into another hot summer. This is a great opportunity for people to learn how to be prepared for future events such as wildfires and floods, and talk about ways to reduce the stress and anxiety that may be building with the wildfire season approaching.
This is an important opportunity for our community members to speak directly with subject experts about recovery efforts that are underway in response to last year’s wildfires and preparations for this coming wildfire season, including staff from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. Topics will include:

This collaborative event is co-hosted by the City of Williams Lake, Cariboo Regional District and the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.

Times and topics will be published in upcoming editions of the Williams Lake Tribune and on the City’s website at www.williamslake.ca.
