Working towards a FireSmart community relies on strong partnerships.
Interagency cooperation includes activities such as:
- Developing a FireSmart committee
- Coordinating reviews of new developments
- Committing to mutual-aid fire control agreements
When wildfire threatens a community, response efforts can be complex and involve multiple agencies. Working together before a wildfire strikes is important to ensure a coordinated response.
