FireSmart is a national program that is focused on reducing property loss and damage due to wildfire. Wildfire is a natural phenomenon that has the potential to be very destructive. Science and research has shown that properties and neighborhoods who prepare in advance of a wildfire have a much greater success of reducing loss.
A number of resources are available to residents free of charge. A rebate program of up to $500 may be available to you. Seniors and other vulnerable residents may also qualify for a grant to have FireSmart mitigation work completed for them at no cost.
All residents are eligible for a free FireSmart Property Assessment by one of our trained fire professionals.
The District is able to provide these services thanks to provincial grants offered through the Community Resiliency Investment Program for FireSmart Community Funding & Supports. A grant of $173,817 was approved for 2023-2024 and the District will be hiring a FireSmart coordinator and crew for the summer.
