What is FireSmart?

Or come to our firehall and speak with one of our firefighters to learn more!

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 the responsibility to lessen the effects of wildfire. Wildland Urban Interface is a popular term used to describe an area where structures and forested areas meet. Simply put, Wildland Urban Interface is where the urban lifestyle meets environments that are prone to wildfire. By choosing to extend our lifestyle and communities further into forested areas, we become more exposed to the danger of wildfire.
FireSmart Canada helps you understand the potential of wildfire affecting your home and your community.

Contest closes Thursday June 20th at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced at our open house on June 22nd.
Entry is limited to residents of the Mill Bay/Cobble Hill Fire Protection District (Map)
We’ll See You There!
