Piers Island is most grateful for the work of BC Hydro crews doing their best and restoring power to the island in 2 days. Still lots of work to be done by some homeowners to have individual lines restored, but the bulk have power again.
A request to Islanders to gather debris from the road and their properties in piles roadside, with the reward of the debris being chipped without cost, garnered a good turnout. Once again, it is the volunteers on Piers that make things run. Huge thanks to those that did the piling and the volunteers that spent a total of 43.5 hours doing the chipping work. At least 20 properties where involved in the advance cleanup work.
Kudos to Islanders for this storm clean up #FireSmart work.
