Since 2013, the Anarchist Mountain FireSmart Committee has worked to “help our neighbours in protecting the community from wildfire”.
People living in forested areas need to be aware of the wildfire threat and ways they can take action to make their home and community become “FireSmart”.
Once again, the FireSmart committee along with local residents, have worked diligently to maintain the requirements for our community to be recognized as a FireSmart Community.
Well done to all!!!
Yard Refuse Disposal 2020 – OMEI Wapiti Pit
We would like to thank Ron Palmer and Osoyoos Mountain Estates for working with us to find a location to collect yard refuse.
The site is to be used for the disposal of materials to aid in making your property more FireSmart. Examples of materials accepted are:
- Grass, leaves, needles etc.
- Brush, branches etc.
- Items being brought in bags, boxes, etc. are to be emptied and the containers taken away.
- NO construction debris is to be brought in.
- Any abuse of the site will result in its immediate closure.
A member of AMCS/FireSmart committee will open and close the site and also monitor the origin and material coming into the site.
The hours of operation are 10:00am to 12:00pm on the Saturdays listed below. The site is located on Wapiti. Turn onto Wapiti and take the first road to the right.
