[ARCHIVED] New Webinar to Help Residents Become FireSmart

Wednesday, March 17, 2021

Every year in the province of BC, people and property are threatened by wildfires. Many of these fires occur in areas called the urban interface zone where homes, cabins, and subdivisions are built into the forest landscape. Individual property owners can and should help reduce the risk of wildfire affecting their properties.

Through our FireSmart initiative, the CSRD is committed to providing homeowners and communities with the information they need to reduce wildfire risk.

For detailed information, the CSRD has developed a 30-minute webinar presentation below that will review the risk factors and help you understand simple things you can do to protect your home and property from wildfire. CSRD FireSmart Coordinator Len Youden will walk you through ways you can protect yourself and options for getting involved with the CSRD's FireSmart resources.

For more information or to sign up for a free CSRD Home Assessment, go to the FireSmart in the CSRD webpage.
