In followup to the FireSmart Awareness day; for those that expressed interest in purchasing Barricade Fire Protection Gel and WASP Sprinkler Protection systems; the FireSmart committee investigated options for purchase of these products.
BARRICADE FIRE PROTECTION GEL: In the past the Anarchist Mountain Fire Department coordinated a bulk purchase directly from the manufacturer; however the AMFD does not require more Barricade at this time. (24 kits to get the community rate) The best solution we can offer is for individuals to purchase these kits online directly from the manufacturer as follows:
Barricade International
US$474/kit (able to order single kits)
If a number of you are able to coordinate your purchase there is one company that does offer a small discount for orders of 4 kits as follows:
Primo Supply
US$464/kit or reduced price for bulk purchase of $436/kit (4 kit order)
The estimated shipping cost to Oroville is US$36.25/kit. We can assume there will be GST & PST costs to pay at the border.
W.A.S.P. SPRINKLER PROTECTION KITS: These kits are available for bulk purchase from the manufacturer but unfortunately we didn’t have enough interest for a bulk purchase. These kits are available through a number of Canadian retailers (see manufactures website) or can be purchased online directly from the manufacturer as follows:
Wildfire Automated Sprinkler Protection (W.A.S.P.)
Manufacturers list price CDN $154.99/kit
Another option for sprinkler systems is for individuals to build thier own system to suit their property and have available water supply. All the necessary supplies are available locally:
Nulton Irrigation; 5830 Sawmill Road, Oliver
For anyone that wishes to build their own sprinkler system the FireSmart committee can offer advise based on our personal experiences.

Our Thanks

Just want to thank all the first responders who showed up at our house prior to the ambulance getting there.  It made mom feel less stressful after suffering from shortage of breath.
Spent most of the day at Oliver hospital to find out she is suffering from a type of lung infection.
Thanks again guys and gal.  This community is really special.

2018 BBQ & Silent Auction – July 14th


BBQ 2018

A resident’s barn was broken into on Long Joe Rd, last Friday (8th) or Saturday night and two chainsaws were stolen.  The theft has been reported to the RCMP. There is a scanty description of two persons ….. fairly short, and one had dark hair and the other reddish hair. See below.

The interesting thing about this is that earlier, two young guys came to their place asking for water for their radiator.  They had left their vehicle at the top of the long driveway and walked down, so my neighbour did not see the vehicle.  A second person on Long Joe Rd. on June 2nd encountered , a white Mazda pickup came down the driveway with two young guys in it, the passenger got out and asked if they could have some water for their radiator, as it was overheating.  They didn’t have any container for the water, and when the resident got some water, he questioned whether it was really boiling or not.  The young man made a feeble effort to get the radiator cap off but couldn’t.  They were told to go down the mountain and it should cool off.

These two were young men were quite scruffy in dress, and we think  the white beat-up Mazda pickup (1997-2000) was a single cab (not crew cab or extended cab).  Inside the truck there was a big gap where the radio usually is and mounted in its place was a large unit of some kind.

I understand that there was another theft in the past week, with some ATV’s stolen in the Peregrine area.

Keep your eyes open, report any beat-up white trucks, try to get a licence plate # and call the RCMP if suspicious characters are seen.

Break In on Bobcat

Our RV & storage shed was broken into at Bobcat Crt.   We think this happened the night of the 10th or 11th.  Did any one happen to see anything unusual in the area of the community mail boxes during that time?
