Welcome to the BC Forest Safety Council

Special Avalanche Bulletin

"The CAC has issued the third special public avalanche warning in four weeks. The warning area includes all the mountains of interior BC—from Mackenzie and Chetwynd south to the US boundary, and west of the Alberta border to Pemberton and Hope. Very large, very destructive avalanches have occurred in the last few days.

Membership with the BC Forest Safety Council

The British Columbia Forest Safety Council (the Council) was created by the forestry industry in September 2004 as a not-for-profit society dedicated to promoting forest safety. Through the efforts of industry, solid progress in reducing serious injuries and fatalities has been made (see attachment on this article). Our challenge is to build on the success of the last seven years.

1. Do your pre-trip – all of it. There are enough things that will surprise you during the day without your truck being one of them. Know your equipment - intimately. Be confident it will perform as you expect it to. Before winter is over, you are likely to need every one of those tires to give you 100% traction – there’s no room for worn-out, mismatched or under-inflated tires. And you’ll need each one of your brakes working – together. When those moments occur, there is no margin for “too tight”, “too loose”, or “not quite sure”.
