Industry FireSmart Partners are industrial and commercial companies and operators who conduct business or operate in a forested or grassland environment.
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 to 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.
