Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable
The Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable held its inaugural meeting in February 2020. The Roundtable aims facilitate 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 is 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. A map is in development. Much of this area was burned in the 2017 Elephant Hill Wildfire.
While there is no current or comprehensive Community Wildfire Protection Plan for the entire area, 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.
