B.C. Safe Silviculture Project: Contractor Capacity-Building in Wildland Fire Management [open pdf - 15KB]
"There is significant need to increase the capacity of the private-sector wildland fire resource in British Columbia. The 2003 fire season revealed a shortage of trained and qualified personnel to carry out not only the traditional work of extended attack and mop- up but also to carry out the dangerous and demanding job of initial attack. The results of the 2003 fire season also revealed the need for more aggressive fuel treatments including the use of prescribed fire."
