Fire Mitigation

Solano Resources is proud to be part of British Columbia’s approach to mitigate forest fires by on ground fuel reduction methods. We have created working relationships and sought out specialized equipment in order to tackle the most challenging of fire mitigation projects. Solano works with Nakimu Ventures Ltd and Hydrive Resources Inc to offer complete fire mitigation services from selective thinning, to hand treatment, to grinding residual waste for biomass. Solano Resources is grateful for the support from FESBC, Ministry of Forests, Gorman Bros, Aspen Planers, and the City of Kelowna for these projects, as it is a great way to keep the communities we live in safe.
