Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes the 2007 comprehensive Community Wildfire Protection Plan of the City of Kamloops, British Columbia.The overarching goal of the Plan was to identify the risk of life, property and environmental losses due to wildfire, and reduce it through effective pre-planning and preparation. A hazard assessment was conducted to determine the amount and configuration of forest fuel and the ensuing threat to adjacent structures. The plan's proposed hazard reduction measures were based on FireSmart hazard reduction guidelines. Several challenges still remain, such as ongoing forest management to control levels of forest fuel, and public engagement in forest fire risk reduction.
