Attention: At this time, the Local FireSmart Representative (LFR) Workshop materials are being updated by FireSmart Canada. The education materials are being condensed and the workshop will now be held during a one-day workshop rather than the original two-day workshop.

Once the LFR workshop updates are complete, FireSmart BC will once again be offering LFR workshops in a number of communities across BC. It is our sincere hope that we are able to host in-person LFR workshops in the fall once the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic in British Columbia stabilizes

We will post updates onto this website, the FireSmart BC Facebook page and the BC Local FireSmart Representatives Community of Practice Facebook page as they become available, so please check back there for information. We appreciate your patience and understanding - now is the time to be safe, be smart and to take care of yourself, your family, your colleagues and your friends.

Courses

At FireSmart we strive to create a community of continued learning. We offer a mix of course types – from the FireSmart 101 online course to workshops throughout British Columbia.

This online course provides a great introduction to FireSmart. You'll learn about the Wildland Urban Interface, why FireSmart is needed more than ever, the seven FireSmart principles and much more.

We regularly host in-person workshops and courses for Local Fire Representatives thoughout BC.
