The 2024 Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit (WRTS) is being held from April 20 – 24 in Prince George, British Columbia. The event will bring together approximately 700 wildfire professionals, First Nation members, and industry partners to share wildfire knowledge and strengthen relationships, with a focus on how to Recover, Rebuild and Prepare after wildfire.
In recognition of the critical role that wildland firefighters play in keeping the province safe, FireSmart BC, the First Nations’ Emergency Services Society, and BC Wildfire Service have partnered to create the new BC Wildland Firefighter Awards, which will recognize four firefighters (Indigenous and non-Indigenous) each year at the WRTS.
Please help support this important new award by nominating your fellow wildland firefighter colleagues. If you have questions or need support, please email [email protected].
