The District of Mackenzie and the Community Forest Debris Pile Spring Burn
Mackenzie in Motion
There are a number of logging debris piles near the community as a result of the wildfire fuel control logging completed last year. There is a short spring window of opportunity to burn these piles safely or the piles and the risk of fire will remain through summer until the fall when more burns can be completed. The spring burn is scheduled to start Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 if conditions allow, for the next few weeks.
The Municipality, under the direction of the Fire Chief will be conducting these burns in order to reduce fuel loading within the community and the potential fire hazards that exist due to recent wind events and ongoing fuel management programs.The Municipality has requested and will receive assistance from the Wildlife Management Branch. They have expertise in Fuel Management and technical resources such as Custom Spot Venting Forecasts to avoid smoke issues in town.
For any further information please contact the Municipal Office at (250) 997-3221.

The sky's the limit!
Mackenzie’s serene location in the Northern Rocky Mountain Trench, two hours north of Prince George, provides strategic access to a resource planning area larger than Vancouver Island.
Excellent air, ground, rail, and marine transportation links are the methods of access to a hotbed of mining potential, forestry operations, and adventure tourism opportunities. While Mackenzie’s economy is primarily dependent on the forest industry, local companies have also benefited from servicing the mining exploration and development sector.
