The BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC) has released an updated Resource Road User Safety Guide. It is intended for recreational users or industrial traffic unfamiliar with travelling on resource roads (e.g. delivery vehicles, mining, land surveying, etc.). This guide lets readers know what to expect on resource roads and some things travelers should do to ensure a safe trip. It provides driving guidelines aimed at helping drivers understand how to drive and communicate on resource roads.
Please note this guide provides basic information for travelers on BC resource roads. It does not contain maps or area specific information such as radio frequencies or road closures. It should not be considered a replacement for proper trip planning.

The Hurley was graded recently and one of the side effects of grading is the new, sharp rocks that are exposed. It’s a good reminder to always travel the Hurley with a spare tire (or two!) and a plug kit. Thanks to Ray Mason who sent in the image below of a freshly shredded tire on the Hurley!
