Wildfire consultation meetings conclude tonight

The last of a series of meetings hosted by the Cariboo Regional District is taking place Wednesday, Nov. 15 in Big Lake

The final wildfire community consultation meeting conducted by the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) will take place Wednesday, Nov. 15 at the Big Lake Community Hall.

Meetings have been scheduled in 17 of the most impacted fire and evacuation areas and are a way for the CRD to reach out to residents and gain feedback on the emergency efforts as well as understand community and resident needs through recovery.

Several agencies who were part of the emergency will also be in attendance, in addition to various staff from the CRD at the meeting in Big Lake Wednesday night.

Dinner is at 5:30 p.m. with the meeting scheduled to get underway at 6:30 p.m.

Further consultation will happen including visits to schools, senior facilities, community support groups and community events. In addition, watch for other opportunities later in November including a Facebook Live video event and a survey.

The consultations are being completed on behalf of the Cariboo Regional District by Tim Conrad, APR, and Lloyd Piehl of Butterfly Effect Communications, both of whom were part of the information team during emergency operations this summer.
