Supporting FireSmart across B.C. at the community level
The purpose of the FireSmart coordinator is to ensure that FireSmart activities are supported, developed, and implemented in accordance with Provincial guidelines as well as with the direction and policy provided by the local government, First Nation or Regional District.
FireSmart Coordinators are responsible for acting as the main point of contact within the communities they serve and linking their local area to the provincial FireSmart Program. FireSmart Coordinators coordinate public education and FireSmart activities completed through the Community Resiliency Investment funding program and organize community events such as Community Wildfire Preparedness Day, farmer’s markets, local sporting events, school presentations, tradeshows, and more to engage with the public and distribute FireSmart information.
