In 2020, the Kaslo and District Community Forest Society in southeastern British Columbia completed a Landscape-Level Wildfire Plan within its tenure area. The planning was undertaken in the wake of some of the largest and fiercest wildfires in recent BC history and was guided by the Provincial Strategic Threat Analysis initiative. The incorporation of field-captured data on a slope/aspect matrix map is a reference resource for ongoing fuel reduction project efforts as well as fire suppression strategies to be used if a wildfire should threaten communities in the Kaslo/North Kootenay Lake area.
