OP PEREGRINE GALLERY - 1

Operation Peregrine is the name of the Canadian Forces fire fighting efforts in British Columbia during the summer of 2003. During the fires many communities in the interior of the province were threatened and suffered severe damage. Over 2,600 soldiers, sailors and air force personnel fought the fires alongside their civilian counterparts from the BC Forest Service and local fire departments protecting British Columbians from this threat.
