The negative effects of fire protection Macdonald, Curtis

Abstract

B.C. has a history of fire suppression dating back to 1905 (Watts & Tolland, 2005). Since then the idea of fire protection has been developed to be used in conjunction with fire suppression. Fire suppression and protection techniques have improved over the last century and are used throughout the province as a means to protect communities. These communities benefit from the fire protection but what draw backs do these operations have? How can fire protection operations harm the community it was put in place to protect? This paper will look at the negative effects of fire protection on communities around B.C. and how these effects can be mitigated.
