Featured Project:
Resiliency Planning with FireSmart

Coldstream Nature-Based Solutions can help local communities work with their local FireSmart representative to complete home fire risk assessments, create neighborhood FireSmart plans and apply for funding for fire risk reduction actions.

 

FireSmart is an organization that develops resources and programs designed to empower communities in becoming resilient to wildfires across Canada. Funding can be used for events to increase FireSmart awareness and reduce ignition hazards within the community.
