About FireSmart Education
FireSmart communities all have one thing in common: an organized group of passionate and educated residents, bolstered by their local government, driving positive change.
The whole process starts with a community, or a group, or an individual, taking an interest in learning more about the threat of wildfire and how that threat can be mitigated. The grassroots implementation of FireSmart by empowered members of the public often results in the most robust community programs.
Through online and printed resources available from FireSmart Canada, education can be promoted and shared within a community and neighbourhood, raising further interest and awareness among more residents.
Neighbours talk, friends talk, people share information that is important to them and FireSmart is no different. Phone calls and face to face conversations from residents and professionals can have a more meaningful and lasting effect on people.
