The newly updated LFR workshop was developed by the Partners in Protection Association to assist participants in becoming familiar with and implement all components of the FireSmart™ Canada Neighborhood Recognition Program (FCNRP). The training provided in this virtual workshop equips Local FireSmart Representatives with an understanding of current Wildland Urban Interface concepts and wildfire hazard assessments. It provides them with the tools and skills necessary 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.
The BC FireSmart Committee will be hosting the following LFR Workshops for BC participants in 2021 and 2022:
• July 14 & 15, 2021 – AM Session
• November 3 & 4, 2021 – AM Session
• December 1 & 2, 2021 – AM Session
