People living in forested areas need to be aware of the wildfire threat and ways they take action to make their home and community become “FireSmart.”

Partners in Protection Canada have developed educational materials to inspire FireSmart actions:

Home (structure) hazard assessment
Area hazard assessment
FireSmart Guide to Landscaping
FireSmart – Protecting Your Community From Wildfire

Check out our Resources page for more educational materials you can share with your community.
