Communities in the Capital Region are set amongst a patchwork of natural and developed areas at risk of wildfire. Homeowners can take simple actions to create a FireSmart property, dramatically increasing the resistance of your home and property to wildfire damage. 

The CRD supports Electoral Area communities in reducing wildfire risk.  Read our Community Wildfire Resiliency Plans, and view our Wildfire Community Roundtable Webinars:

Electoral Area Staff, Emergency Programs, and Fire Departments host regular:

  • Community wood chipping events
  • Free home inspections from a Local FireSmart Representative
  • Public information sessions

For more information on scheduled events in your community, see the event listing in the right sidebar and stay tuned to social media.
