FireSmart Canada

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 fire fighter you can learn more about how to help your community become FireSmart.

How to become FireSmart:

I am committed to contribute to a FireSmart Committee and lead by example. I'll prune the first 2 m of spruce boughs from the trees around my home..
