FireSmart Communities Program Needs You!!
The FireSmart Communities Program is designed to encourage self-organized groups of residents to take the lead in implementing solutions for wildfire safety on their own properties.
The Program provides people living in wildfire prone areas with the knowledge and organizational means to significantly reduce their neighbourhood’s vulnerability to wildfire. This is achieved by planning and working together with the support of the Local FireSmart Representative.
Remember, if you’re concerned about the wildfire hazard in your area, there’s a good chance your neighbours feel the same way. The FireSmart Communities Program is designed to assist you and your neighbours to develop an action plan to reduce your wildfire hazard simply and effectively.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, contact your Local FireSmart Representative. There’s no obligation and the program is funded by a variety of fire prevention agencies.
