FireSmart information session planned for Edgewater

An introductory information session will be held in Edgewater this September and the East Kootenay FireSmart Program is encouraging the community to attend.

“Protecting your home is so important. Focusing on the FireSmart priority zones can reduce the intensity of a wildfire and slow its spread, while increasing your home’s resiliency,” said Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Interface Fire Prevention Officer Thomas Dobbin.

“This session is open to everyone, and we encourage the community to come and learn more about how we can support residents in their efforts to be FireSmart.”

The information session will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7 at the Edgewater Community Hall.

It will include information on the East Kootenay FireSmart Program, FireSmart resources, and an opportunity for a question-and-answer period with a local FireSmart representative.

The FireSmart Program offers clear guidelines and simple steps that the public can take to make their homes and properties more fire resilient.
