FireSmart Provincial Representative for Northwest Territories
Position: FireSmart Coordinator
Department of Environment and Natural Resources
Government of the NWT
Westly Steed, born and raised in Fort Smith, NWT. I started with ENR in the 1980’s as a Mixer with the Air Attack Program and through various career choices have made it back to Forestry. I truly see the need for FireSmart throughout the NWT and Canada. We must continue to educate people, homeowners and community leaders as to the importance of the FireSmart program so as to ensure that our communities reduce the risk of wildfire destroying our homes, businesses and lives.
