The municipality will conduct controlled burning east of Sunset Place near the Deer Ridge neighbourhood.

The final phase of the wildland fuel modification work will involve the controlled burning of waste wood on wood piles. The burning will take place when the Ministry of Environment’s ventilation index is at Good. The project coordinator and members of the Summerland Fire Department will supervise the burning.

While the exact date of the burning cannot be determined, Fire Chief Glenn Noble said he expects all burning will be completed on a single day. However, depending on weather conditions, two to three days may be required.
