There is a new program available from the qathet Regional District for assessing your property for its exposure to the risks of wildfire. To get an idea of what that means, watch their YouTube video: FireSmart Your Home. FireSmart Coordinator Marc Albert takes you through some basic steps you can take to reduce wildfire loss of your home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLHFPpdXaBY
If you can’t do the branch and debris cleanup on your own, there is also a rebate program for property owners who make FireSmart improvements to their properties. For a free assessment and more information contact the qRD’s FireSmart Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-414-7839.
