  • Sponsoring a local Neighbourhood FireSmart Committee, which maintains the FireSmart Neighbourhood Plan and tracks its progress or status.
  • Conducting FireSmart events each year that are dedicated to a local FireSmart project.
  • Investing a minimum of $2 per capita annually in local FireSmart Neighbourhood efforts.
  • Submitting an annual report to FireSmart Canada that documents continuing compliance with the program.
