FireSmart Your Property
By taking action and creating a FireSmart property, you will dramatically increase the resistance of your home and property to damage caused by wildfire. The best part is, it’s surprisingly easy to do.
The FireSmart BC Homeowner’s Manual recommends actions starting from the home and progressing outwards. Changes made to the areas closest to the home, and your home itself, have the greatest potential to reduce the risk of wildfire damage.
TNRD FireSmart Community Assessment Reports
The FireSmart Canada Community Recognition Program is designed to provide an effective management approach for preserving wildland living aesthetics while reducing community ignition potential. The program can be tailored for adoption by any community and/or neighborhood association that is committed to ensuring its citizens maximum protection from wildland fire.
FireSmart Community Assessment Reports were completed for 24 communities within the TNRD in October of 2019. The following reports are intended as a resource to be used by residents of the listed communities for creating a FireSmart Community Plan. The plan developed from this information should be implemented in a collaborative manner, and updated and modified as needed.
