FireSmart Home Partners is a voluntary property assessment program that helps residents identify specific actions and upgrades they can take on their property to reduce wildfire risks.
The program’s primary purpose is to engage homeowners in voluntary wildfire mitigation activities by offering a professional home assessment with property-specific recommendations. This approach provides them with a comprehensive FireSmart road map for their property.
The assessment process accurately evaluates a home and property for wildfire exposure, while engaging the homeowner in their unique risk and ways to reduce it.
Conducted by formally trained and qualified fire service professional. FireSmart Canada has developed a comprehensive training program for fire departments. This training offers an online portion for firefighters to go through the theoretical components of the course and a one-day in-person practical course.
All data is collected by a mobile device and the homeowner will receive a detailed report outlining the action items for their property. When a property owner meets all mitigation criteria – they will receive a “mitigation certificate” confirming that they met the FireSmart best practices on their property.
