Becoming a Recognized FireSmart Community

What are the Benefits of Being a FireSmart Community?

  • While the benefits can vary, there are a number of positive outcomes experienced by communities that become members of the FireSmart Communities Program.
  • Being “FireSmart”:
  • - Creates defensible space that prevents fires from advancing and endangering homes and lives. - Reduces the probability that wind-driven embers falling far ahead of a wildfire will ignite a fire on or around your home. - Improves property value while reducing risk of loss. - Improves community relationships with local fire staff, since firefighters can concentrate their efforts on fighting wildfires rather than devoting often limited resources to protecting homes – which may ultimately be lost if the fire can’t be contained. - Encourages good neighbours, since the more homes within a community that adopt “FireSmart” practices, the greater the impact on reducing the heat and speed of the fire. - Offers peace of mind, knowing that your home is prepared to survive a wildfire in the event one should occur.
