What is FireSmart?

FireSmart is living with and managing for wildfire on our landscape.

Preparing for the threat of wildfire is a shared responsibility. From homeowners, to industry and  government we all have responsibility to lessen the effects of wildfire.

Education of the public and private land owners on how to reduce their exposure to the risk of wildfire is an important part of FireSmart. The County has promoted FireSmart through a number of initiatives including workshops for residents, information booths at trade shows, wood chipping demonstrations, among others. The County also provides information on FireSmart through the County Connections newsletter, mail outs to residents, and news releases.
