Wild Fires Safety Reminder
It is important to be familiar with the rules of the water (and the sky) while efforts are being made to fight the devastating fires in BC and Alberta. Keep your distance and avoid jeopardizing any firefighting aircrafts that you see skimming the water.
Any wild fires or activities causing danger should be reported immediately. Residents of BC are asked to call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on mobile devices. If in Alberta, call 310-FIRE (3473). Additional provinces can visit their provincial government website to view the correct emergency contact information.
Additionally, a reminder that flying drones anywhere near a wild fire or firefighters at duty, is both law breaking and dangerous. Consequences could result in criminal charges. For more information on this illegal activity please visit https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/drone-safety.html.
