The goal of FireSmart is to promote wildfire awareness, complete risk-reducing wildfire mitigation activities, and conduct FireSmart assessments in at-risk residential areas.
Nelson Fire & Rescue Services will work with homeowners to develop goals that tailor to their unique property by educating them on FireSmart principles and letting them know their available treatment options.
There are simple steps you can take to drastically reduce your property's risk. Download the FireSmart Homeowners Manual or complete a FireSmart Self Assessment found to the right under the Resources tab to learn about how you can make your property and neighbourhood more resilient to wildfire.
