It’s time to get FireSmart about wildfires in BC. Is your community ready for next year’s fire season? We’re here to help make sure you’re prepared when and where it counts.” FireSmart BC 

Research has shown that a house with both a fire resistant roof and a FireSmart zone surrounding it is 85 per cent more likely to survive a wildfire than one that lacks these features. 

To learn how to make your home and neighbourhood more resilient to Wildfires, check out this RDKB FireSmart Presentation and interviews with Area B/Lower Columbia – Old Glory Director Linda Worley and Area C/Christina Lake Director Grace McGregor.
