This includes thinning overgrown forests, educating communities on the importance of active management of fuels around homes, supporting the development of Firewise communities and providing consultations and assistance to residents that help making their homes fire safe.

Eventually, the front of the vehicle collided with a large pine tree. Bishop was able to exit the vehicle and call for assistance. He had been wearing his safety belt at the time of the accident and suffered only a minor contusion to the nose. During the investigation, it was determined that Bishop was under the influence of alcohol. He was subsequently arrested for DUI.
