Description


BC Farm & Ranch Wildfire Preparedness Workshops

Attend one of our agriculture and wildfire risk reduction workshops aimed at agricultural producers from all sectors, wildfire response and emergency personnel, and local government representatives.

You will gain vital knowledge to prepare yourself and your operation for wildfire while ensuring the efficacy and safety of local emergency response.

The workshop will enable you to:

1) Reduce your risk from the climate change impacts of more frequent and higher intensity wildfires.

2) Connect with government representatives responsible for wildfire and emergency planning, as well as local wildfire and emergency response personnel.

3) Learn local wildfire behaviour, threat, and history, and how to apply lessons learned to structural protection.

4) Develop customized wildfire preparedness plan that outlines what needs to occur before, during, and after a fire.

An important element of your wildfire plan is the wildfire preparedness property map. This map is used to provide essential information to emergency responders in the event of a wildfire. When you register you will have the option to ask us to develop your base map OR to create your own base map to bring to the workshop.
