Cone Zone Campaign launched for road safety

Cone Zone season has arrived, as hundreds of workside work zones are getting set up around B.C.

In an effort to improve the safety of roadside workers, the Work Zone Safety Alliance is launching the 2018 Cone Zone Campaign, an annual road safety awareness initiative to encourage safe driving behaviors around roadside workers.

Roadside work is a dangerous job. Between 2008 and 2017, 12 roadside workers were killed and 218 were injured and missed time from work as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle.

Notice: Category 2 Fires Permitted

Effective at noon on Saturday, June 2, 2018, Category 2 open burning will be allowed throughout the Prince George Fire Centre's jurisdiction.

As a result of this prohibition being rescinded, Village of Pouce Coupe residents will also be allowed to have Category 2 open fires. Residents are reminded that open fires are only permitted if you have been issued a burning permit from the Village of Pouce Coupe. 

For more information, including a link to a poster explaining the different categories of open burning, please follow the Information Bulletin link below:

Air Quality Reminder

As the season shifts into spring, Northern Health is reminding municipalities about the ways their operations impact air quality. Road dust can be an issue as the snow melts and winter traction materials dry up. With proper airshed management, planning and policies set in place we can reduce the impact of emissions and air pollution.
