Interagency Cooperation

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.

If you are a firefighter you can learn more about how to help your community become FireSmart.

I commit to I’m committed to supporting local, provincial, and national efforts to raise the FireSmart awareness level within my community.
