Wildfire response online survey available for Cariboo residents

The Cariboo Regional District has created an online survey for Cariboo residents to fill out and share their thoughts on how the regional district responded to the fires during the summer of 2017.

Cariboo Regional District wants feedback on response, mental health, financial needs

Wildfires tore through the Cariboo earlier this year in what was the worst wildfire season on record in B.C. (B.C. Wildfire Service)

Cariboo residents are being invited to share their thoughts on the Cariboo Regional District's wildfire response this past summer via an online survey

The survey covers emergency response, mental health, social and financial needs and what people still need to aid their recovery from the worst wildfire season on record in B.C.

A report from the survey will be delivered to the Cariboo Regional District in early 2018.

The district has been working for two months to find out what else the community needs to recover from the fires. It held 17 meetings with people across the region in early November to get feedback and connect with residents after the wildfires.

Five new positions were created throughout the district, including one hired directly by the Cariboo Regional District, to focus solely on wildfire recovery.
