Victor Cumming – Vernon, BC Mayoral Candidate


Current Situation

General safety in the community is always a major concern for everyone. The combination of prevention, presence and quick follow-up capacity is critical. As part of safety in the region, wildfire prevention is critical. The gradual implementation of fire smart practises particularly in the natural wooded areas of our city, has begun to lower the likelihood of catastrophic wildfires.

Future Actions Required

  • Gradual increase in the number of RCMP members as the population of the community grows.
  • Gradual increase in the number of Bylaw officers to free-up police for criminal activity.
  • Increasing fire smart activities in the City with a focus on wildland interface areas.
  • Continue replacing ageing fire fighting equipment.
  • Enhancing our emergency operations centre and associated emergency services capacity.
