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.
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.
