The Home Partners Program

What is the FireSmart Home Partners Program?

The FireSmart Home Partners Program was designed to engage homeowners in voluntary wildfire mitigation activities by offering a professional home assessment with property-specific recommendations.

The assessment process accurately evaluates a home and property for wildfire exposure, while engaging the homeowner in their unique risk and ways to reduce it. Check out some examples assessments: Whistler example - RDCK example.
