Date: Saturday, May 28, 2022
Location: Sooke Community Market
Time: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Sooke is located within the Wildland Urban Interface zone meaning our community is at a greater risk of a devasting wildfire. Homeowners play an important role in wildfire prevention; they can directly reduce the wildfire risk and damage to their property by using FireSmart principles.
Gather neighbours, friends and family members who want to participate in this event and get prepared.
Sooke residents are invited to book a FREE FireSmart Home Assessment for a CHANCE TO WIN FireSmart prizes! This includes a WASP Wildfire Protection Kit (valued at $165) to protect your home from travelling embers and sparks. As well as other prizes such as a FireSmart Garden Kit that will help you create a FireSmart landscape.
Contest runs until Saturday, July 2, 2022.
