How to Make your Home FireSmart

Sparks and embers can be thrown up to 2 km ahead of a wildfire. These can ignite materials on or near your home, which can be potentially devastating. These FireSmart guidelines will help you create a defensible space around your home, minimizing your fire risk

Did you know that Peachland’s FireSmart community representative can conduct an on-site assessment of your home – for free? They will inspect your home and create a report with steps you can take.
