What are the Seven Disciplines?

Managing wildfire risk and impact by applying FireSmart principles and best practices (wildfire prevention, mitigation and preparedness) at all scales.

The FireSmart program helps protect residents, their homes, neighbourhoods, critical infrastructure and vital natural resources from wildfire. This is a shared responsibility involving all levels of government and participation from the private sector and neighbourhood leaders.

The FireSmart program is implemented through seven disciplines to help neighbourhoods address the threat of wildfire: education, emergency planning, vegetation management, legislation, development, interagency cooperation and cross training.
