Between January and March 2018 there is a review team in BC meeting with community members in regard to the response to recent wildfire and flood events.

The independent review was commissioned by the Province to examine government plans for, and responses to, flood and wildfire events, with a focus on the 2017 season. It will examine the implementation of both provincial and local government emergency management systems to determine how the Province can improve its governance systems, statutes, regulations, policy, and leadership practices to benefit responses to future emergency events

Between January and March 2018, the review team will meet with community members, regional and local stakeholders, and government and First Nations leaders and officials – all of whom will help shape recommendations on how to better plan for and respond to flood and wildfire events in the future: source UBCM
