Williams Lake, BC: During the 2017 Interface Wild Fire the RCMP were joined by first responders who came from British Columbia, across Canada and even around the world, as efforts were made to ensure public safety and the protection of homes and businesses.

In late July, 2017 one of two logs arrived to the RCMP Interface Fire Command Post in Williams Lake, where it was signed by first responders, peace officers and police officers. Emergency personnel were given an opportunity to customize the log and agency patches were added to the hundreds of signatures.

The logs were donated by Bryan Reid Sr, owner of Pioneer Log Homes of BC, known for its HGTV show Timber Kings. Mr. Reid is continuing his long standing tradition in recognizing the extraordinary actions of those in the Williams Lake Community. The two logs are intended to be put on display at either the Williams Lake Museum or the Williams Lake Discovery Tourism Centre.
