May 2 Wildfire Exercise – Kilmer Creek and Cypress Falls

We are writing to let you and your members know about a wildfire exercise taking place on May 2 that will restrict trail access at Cypress Falls Park in West Vancouver and near Kilmer Creek in North Vancouver.
 
Local emergency responders will be participating in a simulated wildfire response exercise to help us better prepare for a real emergency. People in the area will see emergency vehicles and a helicopter.  The helicopter will be using a water bucket and the structure protection units will be deployed.
 
Please avoid the exercise areas between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 2.
 
For more information please go to www.nsem.info. If you have any questions about the exercise, please email nsem@nsem.info.
 
Thank you for your cooperation and we apologize for any inconvenience.
