The Lillooet & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable is a new initiative in formation to better protect against wildfires in the region by supporting good coordination and communication among the organizations responsible for different aspects of wildfire preparedness and risk reduction.

Background

The inaugural meeting of the Lillooet & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable took place in Lillooet on June 27, 2022, co-hosted by the Fraser Basin Council and Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD). There were 35 participants at the meeting from the Northern St’at’imc territory — including those from local, First Nations and provincial governments and other community members.

Participants included fire department staff and volunteers, elected officials and emergency planning staff from the SLRD, District of Lillooet, Lillooet Tribal Council and the St’at’imc communities, forestry consultants, and staff from BC Ministry of Forests, BC Timber Sales and the BC Wildfire Service.

The SLRD presented on FireSmart activities underway and the development of community wildfire resiliency plans. Participants discussed the opportunity to establish a longer-term wildfire preparedness roundtable.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
