Stay safe at the campground or cottage this Canada Day!

The kids are out of school and Canada Day is just around the corner, which means many British Columbians are headed to the great outdoors. Whether you are tenting, RVing or kicking back at the cabin or cottage, BC Safety Authority (BCSA) reminds you to stay safe this long weekend.

BC Safety Authority responding to floods

BC Safety Authority (BCSA) is working with emergency response teams in Hosmer and Lumby to address safety concerns in the wake of recent flooding in both communities. BCSA safety officers are working in cooperation with local authorities, fire departments, RCMP and utility providers to ensure proper precautions are taken to address potential hazards posed by gas and electrical equipment that may have been subject to flooding.

Stay safe at the campground or cottage this long weekend!

For many British Columbians, the Victoria Day long weekend marks the start of the summer recreation season; a time to clean out tents and RVs or open up cottages and cabins.

Before heading out to your favourite campsite or retreat, please take some time to make sure your natural gas or propane appliances are in safe working order. Portable fuel burning appliances should only be used outside where they are properly ventilated. Also, read and understand the manufacturer’s certified instructions regarding the safe operation and maintenance of your appliances.
