FireSmart is a planning tool that helps to reduce wildfires from happening in our community. View our contributing preventative strategies and programs for FireSmart that help keep our community safe:

Your role

Whether you are a homeowner or business and despite your industry or government, we have a shared responsibility to lessen the effects of wildfires and prepare for the threat of wildfire in the County.

Wildfire education

Education on how to reduce their exposure to the risk of wildfire is an important part of FireSmart if you are a public or private landowner. The County has promoted FireSmart through a number of initiatives including workshops for residents, information booths at trade shows, wood chipping demonstrations, among others.

Stay connected

The County also provides information on FireSmart through the County Connections newsletter, mail outs to residents, and news releases.
