Residents in Wadin Bay, Saskatchewan came together for their annual FireSmart work bee on May 19. Residents hauled brush to the chipper and wrapped up their day with an ice cream cake to celebrate their FireSmart success! Way to go, Wadin Bay! Keep up the great work!

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!
