TARGET AUDIENCE:
Fire response and land or municipal managers familiar with wildland/urban interface (WUI) issues and FireSmart® principles that wish to implement the FireSmart® Canada Community Recognition Program (FCCRP) in their jurisdiction by serving as Local FireSmart® Representatives (LFR`s) are the primary target audience.
Specifically:

• Rural or urban planners or managers
• Office of the Fire Commissioner/Fire Marshall agency staff
• WUI specialists (e.g. RPF’s, RFT’s, other land specialists with wildland fire responsibilities)
Note: A shorter duration (1/2 day) ‘FireSmart® Community Champion’ workshop is also offered as a component of the FCCRP and will be delivered subsequently by LFR’s in their respective jurisdictions. Persons wishing to be involved in the FCCRP but who do not have a professional affiliation with WUI fire protection / prevention / planning are advised to enroll in the Community Champion workshop when offered in their community.

WORKSHOP PURPOSE:
This workshop has been developed to assist community leaders and fire professionals to become familiar with and implement all components of the FireSmart® Canada Community Recognition Program. The training provided in this two-day workshop will also equip you – the Local FireSmart® Representative with an understanding of current wildland/urban interface concepts and wildfire hazard assessments, with tools and skills to recruit and motivate volunteer community leaders, and mentoring abilities to work with self-organized groups of citizens as they plan and implement wildfire mitigations in their own neighbourhoods.
