Become FireSmart: Industry Partners
Who are Industry FireSmart Partners?
Industry FireSmart Partners are industrial and commercial companies and operators who conduct business or operate in a forested or grassland environment.
Why is FireSmart important to Industrial and commercial operations?
Dozens of companies are negatively impacted every year by wildfires in the form of shut-ins, site evacuations and direct loss to due damaged or destroyed infrastructure. Liability and financial losses may also occur if a company or operator is found responsible for causing wildfires. In 2011 alone wildfire impacts on the industry in Alberta contributed to a 3.6% reduction in oil and gas extraction in the second quarter due to evacuations, production shut-ins, and construction halts.
