Virtual Fire Smart seminar for Walkerville, Reid Road and Owl Ridge, May 31 7pm; and for Birken, Devine and D’arcy, June 7 7pm

In partnership with the BC Wildfire Service, the SLRD is hosting a series of Virtual FireSmart Seminars.

Join for a free 1.5 hour online session using the Zoom virtual meeting platform to learn about:

  • How to protect your home from wildfires using the FireSmart principles
  • Open burning best practices
  • The SLRD Residential FireSmart Program
  • Options for vegitative debris removal
  • Attractant Management: WildSafe BC presents ways to reduce conflict with wildlife around your home

In the summer of 2021, the SLRD is focusing its FireSmart program in the following communities:

These initiatives include the provision of Residential Home Ignition Zone Assessments, homeowner rebates for those who undertake FireSmart work on their properties, and community assistance with vegetative debris removal in support of these efforts.

The hope is that in future years, these pilots can be expanded to other communities throughout the SLRD.
