Wildfire season will soon be upon us and we need to start preparing today.  

To monitor the activity and stay on top of where the fires are burning, you can use these websites:

Alberta wildfire status map  |  British Columbia wildfire status map

If you find your jobsite too close to the action, you can add protection with one of our stand alone options or, for larger sites, one of our Smokey Series or Badick Series Fire Trucks.
