The District of Sicamous Fire Department received a FireSmart Community Funding and Supports Program grant of $178,000 to hire a full-time FireSmart coordinator and four FireSmart ambassadors. 
The Sicamous FireSmart Crew is offering FREE walkthroughs to help you figure out what steps you can take to make your property FireSmart. If you sign up for a walkthrough, the FireSmart Crew will offer to pick up yard waste after you've completed your yardwork!
Now introducing the coordinator and crew who are ready to make this summer FireSmart:
  • Travis Lansing, FireSmart coordinator
    • "I love being apart of something so important. The ability to continue building the FireSmart program within our community is such an awesome opportunity!"
  • Landen Janz, FireSmart ambassador
    • "I find it really cool how the FireSmart Crew can offer such a great service for free, especially for folks who aren't able to remove yard waste from their properties."
  • Aija Davis, FireSmart ambassador
    • "I really like the education that we're providing on such important topics."
  • Kiana Resalat, FireSmart ambassador
    • "I like being apart of such a welcoming team of people that share a similar passion."
  • Kaily Jeffery, FireSmart ambassador

Watch out for the FireSmart crew set up at local events around the community. You may even have a chance to enter a draw to win a plush Ember, the FireSmart mascot!
