This summer, the RDCK’s Wildfire Mitigation Team is again providing FREE Home Assessments throughout the RDCK including all the region’s municipal partners; Salmo, Kaslo, Nakusp, Creston and Castlegar.  This program is designed to support property owners in order keep the regions’s at-risk communities resilient to Wildfire.

Taking appropriate mitigation actions to the built fuels of your home, as well as the immediate vegetation surrounding them, is the single most important factor in a home surviving a wildfire of any size or magnitude. This has been proven by numerous studies and confirmed/tested regularly by catastrophic wildfires.

For more information or to book an assessment please call 250-352-1539 or go to RDCK.CA/FIRESMART:  https://rdck.ca/EN/main/services/emergency-management/firesmart.html
