Provincial Wildfire Priorities
Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) responds to every wildfire reported in the Forest Protection Area (approximately 60% of the province’s landbase).
To help our response be as effective as possible, ESRD has five provincial priorities.
These priorities guide ESRD in the allocation and use of firefighting resources (firefighters, aircraft and equipment).
These five priorities are listed below, in order in highest priority:
- Human life
- Watersheds* and sensitive soils
- Natural resources
