Forty-four of the 120 B.C. wildland firefighters the province has sent to northern Alberta this week came from the Cariboo Fire Centre.
The CFC also sent two airtanker groups to help fight the fires in Slave Lake, Alta. and outlying communities.
The CFC says the crews are typically deployed for two-week periods; however, should the need change in the province in terms of floods or fires they are available to be called back within 48 hours.
Costs for crew deployments are covered by the Alberta government under the Mutual Aid Resources Sharing Agreement which allows for the movement of firefighting resources across Canada.
The province says it will maintain sufficient firefighting capacity to respond to conditions here.
Steve Thomson, minister of forests, lands and natural resource operations, said in a release.
“While our crews are busy fighting fires elsewhere, it is critical that British Columbians remain cautious and vigilant with open burning by heeding all bans and restrictions.”
