This fall has seen an unusually high amount of rainfall in most coastal regions of BC.
As a result, ground conditions are saturated to maximum levels.
With little relief between rainfall systems moving through the coastal region, please remember to continue to ensure that ground and weather conditions are included in all daily hazard assessments – especially in areas pre-identified as High Hazard.
Many falling and logging crews have already missed multiple days due to rain fall limits exceeding safe levels.
Please continue to exercise appropriate caution and base decisions on you and your crews’ safety.
While we all know there is a cost to lost production days, no cost is worth your or anyone else’s life.
