Wednesday, November 17, 2021 – The District is thanking residents for completing the recent FireSmart (TM) Survey to inform the development of a local FireSmart Program! We’re keen to keep the conversation going.
Meet Ashlene, the District’s FireSmart Program Coordinator, at an upcoming community pop-up to learn more about how you can become more FireSmart:
- Understand how wildfires grow and spread,
- Learn about what to do during a wildfire emergency,
- Learn how to use FireSmart principles to help protect your home and property.
Big thank you also to our local businesses for their support and hosting us outside their storefront:
- Friday, November 19th, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at Fuca Cycles (5871 Sooke Road)
- Tuesday, November 30th, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Stick In The Mud Coffee House (6715 Eustace Road)
Can’t make either of these pop-ups? Submit related questions, through the “Ask a Question” feature at letstalk.sooke.ca/firesmart
This initiative is funded through the UBCM FireSmart Economic Recovery Grant. This grant provides communities with $75,000 to support immediate job creation in order to build local wildfire resiliency and assist communities in recovering from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
