Today we are celebrating the success of the #WildfirePrepDay event held in Steady Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador!

Steady Brook Little Rapids Regional Fire Service provides fire and rescue services to three communities in the Humber Valley.

For their Wildfire Community Preparedness Day event, they decided to use their Fire Hall to host a day filled with FireSmart and wildfire prevention demonstrations - providing examples of how to easily integrate FireSmart into everyday life.

They even had a little help from their friends - staff from Newfoundland and Labrador's Forestry and Agrifoods Agency and the local Red Cross.

What an amazing show of #community!

Thank you, Steady Brook Fire Department for all that you do!

We are celebrating community members from the Fissile and Idyllwood neighbourhoods in Whistler, BC on their amazing #WildfirePrepDay event which was held earlier this month.

As you can see, they were hard at work removing branches and limbs - reducing wildfire risks around their homes.

Once all the debris was collected, they piled, collected and deposited it for chipping. Thank goodness for the wheelbarrows!

Great work on reducing the vulnerability of your neighbourhood to wildfire!
