Shout out to the KDFN crew of wildland firefighters hard at work this fire season.
Over the past two weeks, they have been working side-by-side with other Yukon crews and Nova Scotia firefighters to suppress the Takhini Bridge fire. That work includes securing the fire’s edge, hose lays and extinguishing hotspots with hand tools and water around the perimeter of the fire.
Fourteen of Yukon’s 23 initial attack firefighting crews are contracted through service agreements with Yukon First Nations. The Kwanlin Dün First Nation crew works out of the Southern Lakes regional firebase.
