We are joining in the celebration of #NIPDCanada by honouring and celebrating the heritage, diversity, and achievements of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.
Indigenous-informed practices are important to #FireSmartCanada - they play an important role in understanding and advancing wildfire prevention and reducing wildfire risk.
Today, we are reaffirming our commitment to helping advance Indigenous knowledge in areas relevant to FireSmart® including healing and protecting the land, respecting wildfires as living entities, and connecting with communities.
FireSmart Canada President, Laura Stewart, talks with Ryan Jespersen Show/Afternoon News Producer from Alberta's 630 CHED about how communities and urban homeowners can help reduce the vulnerability of their homes and/or property to #wildfire using #FireSmart principals.
Our thoughts are with community members being affected by the wildfire situation in Alberta - along with all the hardworking firefighters.
If you know of someone facing the threat of a wildfire, please share this Last-Minute Wildfire Checklist for simple actions they can take to reduce the vulnerability of their home and/or property to wildfire.
