FireSmart is living with and managing for wildfire.
Preparing for the threat of wildfire is a shared responsibility. Community members, community leaders, forest companies, industry and government we all have responsibility
to lessen the effects of wildfire. FireSmart uses preventative measures to reduce wildfire threat to Albertans and their communities while balancing the benefits
of wildfire on the landscape.
For further information see:
- Can reduce the likelihood of large uncontrollable wildfires in Alberta’s forests.
- Recognizes the benefit of introducing the controlled application of fire to sensitive and protected areas of the forest (prescribed fire).
- Is built on partnerships between government, industry and homeowners. Wildfires burn regardless of administrative boundaries.
