In the wake of a deadly wildfires that have scorched thousands of acres of timberland in B.C., a number of communities have taken advantage of the province’s disaster-relief funds to establish development plans.
Here are three examples of how a community can help recover after an emergency.
Kelowna, B.S. Kelonia, British Columbia Kelonia is located in the B.A.T.
S region, which includes B.F.T., B.L.G. and Yukon Territory.
As of May 11, Kelonia had a population of about 14,000 people.
It has an unemployment rate of 5.8 per cent.
It’s home to about 1,200 residents.
The city of Kelonia was the scene of a wildfire in 2016, which burned some 200,000 hectares of forest, destroyed over 3,000 buildings and destroyed at least 1,600 homes.
The B.W. Fire of 2016 also destroyed the city’s fire station.
Kelonians have had to cope with the loss of their fire stations.
The fire station, located at 2201 S. W. Kelonial Way, was destroyed in 2016.
The building was the site of a fire in 2015, and was also burned down in 2015.
The Kelonia City Hall was burned down, and the fire station and the community center that housed it were also destroyed.
It is estimated that around 1,000 residents were evacuated from the Kelonia area in the aftermath of the fire.
Residents of Kelon have been able to rebuild their lives in the wake, said Chief Grant MacKenzie, Kelon Mayor.
Kelons chief development officer, Mike Crouse, said Kelonia’s disaster relief fund is now being used to build a community centre, including a recreation centre, an emergency shelter and a community-based school.
The community centre is being developed with the help of local First Nations, said Crouse.
“This is the first time in Kelonia history that this is happening,” he said.
Crouse said Kelon’s emergency response has included the creation of an emergency-response centre at the city hall, where First Nations people have been taking over management of the centre.
In addition, the Kelonian Government has also developed a program to assist the Kelownans affected by the fires.
The government will provide $30,000 for a First Nations community-led project to help rebuild Kelon and the surrounding area, which is the equivalent of $7,000 per person, said the mayor.
Citing Kelons recent record, the chief development executive said the Kelon government has also made significant investments in the city.
In the years following the fire, the city lost its water supply and sewerage system, and $3 million in reconstruction projects were completed.
The mayor said the city is working to help restore the community’s health and rebuild its infrastructure.
Kelora, British Colombia Kelora was also affected by a wildfire.
The town of Kelora has an estimated population of around 1.8 million people.
Keloras first fire occurred in 2015 and destroyed about 1.3 million hectares of timberlands.
The timberland fire was the result of a forest fire, which was also started by a tree fire.
The forest fire burned for more than two months, destroying over 3.5 million hectares.
The municipality said it was fortunate to have a forest-management project that has worked well with local First Nation communities.
Keloras disaster relief funds have also been used to rebuild a recreation facility, a community kitchen and a recreation center.
The facility, which has a playground, pool, water slide and volleyball court, is being constructed by Kelora’s First Nations Community Centre, Crouse added.
Keloranas disaster-recovery program was established in 2008 to help Kelora rebuild after the devastating wildfires.
“Our city has rebuilt,” said Couse.
“We’ve had to rebuild.
We have to rebuild to recover, and it’s not a one-time thing.”
Kelora Mayor Mike Cokes said Kelora will also use the funds to help the Kelora community, as well as to provide financial assistance to residents affected by wildfire.
Keloa, British N.S., has an average population of more than 1.5 people per square kilometre.
It was hit hard by the 2016 wildfire.
A fire that raged through Keloa destroyed at most 30 structures and destroyed more than 4,000 homes.
Residents were forced to move to other areas, and many were forced out of their homes.
In 2018, Keloa City Council approved a $500,000 emergency grant for Keloa to rebuild after a fire destroyed more that 1,400 houses.
The grant was also used to pay for a recreation building, a fire-proofed community centre and an outdoor swimming pool.
Cokes noted that Keloa also had to pay $1.4 million in costs for reconstruction and rebuilding, including $3.1 million for a community
