How to Become a FireSmart Community

Would you like to make your entire neighbourhood more resilient to wildfire?

Neighbourhoods, subdivisions and small towns throughout Canada prone to wildfires can become a FireSmart Community. You’ll be recognized with an on-site plaque posted in your neighbourhood, providing peace of mind to both residents and visitors.

FireSmart communities also take part in a fun annual community event guided by the local fire department. Firefighters come to the community to help with risk reduction and fuel removal, tied in to a neighbourhood block-type event.

To find out more, contact the Peachland FireSmart Team, who will connect you with a community FireSmart representative. This representative will visit your area and assess any potential wildfire hazards.
