Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable

About the Roundtable

The Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable facilitates the coordination and communication of organizations responsible for wildfire preparedness and risk reduction in the region, with involvement of local government, First Nations, volunteer fire departments, fire brigades, ranchers and others in the forest industry.

The Roundtable held its inaugural meeting in February 2020, focusing its efforts on an area that extends from south of Clinton, west to Kelly Lake, Jesmond and Big Bar Lake, north to 70 Mile House, and east to the North Bonaparte area and Loon Lake. Much of this area was burned in the 2017 Elephant Hill Wildfire.

As a community wildfire resiliency plan was in development, fuel management projects have been carried out through the leadership of the Village of Clinton and others. The Clinton Community Forest and the 100 Mile House Natural Resource District are also pursuing fuel management treatments in the area.

The Fraser Basin Council provides facilitation and secretariat support to the Roundtable.

Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Resiliency Plan

Clinton CWRP reports

In March 2023 the Village of Clinton and Thompson-Nicola Regional District completed a Community Wildfire Resiliency Plan (CWRP) for the Village of Clinton and a large area of TNRD Electoral Area E (Jesmond, Big Bar Lake, Meadow Lake, Chasm, Loon Lake).

The plan is aimed at improving wildfire preparedness and mitigating losses from possible emergency events. The plan serves as a guide and identifies a number of actions to mitigate risks and reduce fire hazard in and around the community and promote FireSmart awareness.
