FIRE SMART PROGRAM
The threat of wildfires will always exist in organized and unorganized areas if prevention measures are not taken into consideration and implemented in advance. As more new developments grow in forested areas and new dwellings are built in natural areas, the public should be aware of the problems related to wildfires and the preventative actions required to augment the efforts of organized firefighting services.
The BC Wildfire Service FireSmart Homeowner's Manual is an interactive manual providing individuals with the necessary tools to plan and mitigate the risk of fire in interface areas. Download the manual by clicking on the link above or visit the FireSmart website by clicking the picture to the right.
