Three logs bearing signatures from hundreds of emergency personnel who assisted during the wildfires in the Cariboo-Chilcotin will be on permanent display in Williams Lake, the Nelson Star reports.
Bryan Reid Sr., founder of Pioneer Log Homes of B.C., donated the logs and came up with the idea for the project.
The logs went to the RCMP Interface Fire Command Post in Williams Lake, the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department and the temporary military base in Williams Lake so emergency personnel could sign them, Reid said.
“To me there are totem poles,” Reid said. “They tell a story forever of who was here and helped in a time of emergency.”
