As recommended by the District of Houston’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) and a broader Provincial strategy for wildfire management, prescribed burns will continue to take place west of Houston as part of an ongoing wildfire fuel mitigation and interface management initiative. The CWPP identified the area between Buck Flats Road and the Morice Forest Service Road as a high-risk area for a
wildfire spread due to the high combustibility and density of dead and dry vegetation in that area.
