We are residents of the Gun Lake area (full-time, part-time and occasional) who are concerned about protecting our area from wildfire devastation.
We provide information on lessening your fire hazard, education on wildfire behavior, demonstrate how to set up your own sprinkler system and train you on what equipment is available and how to use it properly.
In the event of a wildfire, our goal is to be able to prevent it from spreading, or at least slow it down, until Forestry arrives. In the event of a house or cabin fire, our goal is to try to keep the fire from spreading and/or becoming a wildfire.
Can you use a phone, can you tow a trailer, can you supervise others, can you start a pump? There is something everyone can do, not just the young and strong. Get to know your neighbours and let’s work together to protect our valley. We can’t do this alone. Whether you are here a month, a week, or a day, in the event of an emergency we need your help. We need to help each other!
Remember there are no government fire services here! They are hours not minutes away!
We are on our own it pays to be involved.

In 2020, we were finally able to replace our 20 plus year old fire hose with much needed new hose. Each year we continue to expand and upgrade our equipment to better serve the Gun Lake community.
