Fire protection work planned for Faulder
The regional district will ride shotgun as the Penticton Indian Band proceeds with wildfire prevention work in the Faulder area.
To reduce the availability of fuel, crews will thin out understory trees on Crown land behind homes in the interface area around Faulder, according to a press release issued Friday by the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen.
There is no cost to the RDOS, which had identified the unfunded project as a priority, since the PIB has obtained an unspecified amount of money to do the work.
The band has scheduled an information meeting for the community on Tuesday, March 5, from 7-8 p.m. at the Summerland library.
