Cariboo Fire Centre information office to close for the season

After Nov. 30 all fire information queries will be answered by provincial fire information officers

The Cariboo Fire Centre’s information section will be closed for the season as of Thursday, Nov. 30.

People wanting to get in touch with a fire information officer are encouraged to contact the provincial fire information officer line by e-mailing FireInfo@gov.bc.ca or calling 250-312-3051.

This summer during the wildfires, there were several fire information officers working throughout the Cariboo-Chilcotin who came from around B.C., across Canada and as far away as Australia to assist local fire information officers.

Each major fire had its own incident management team and a fire information officer attached to it who provided media and the public with regular updates.
