FireSmart Alberta will be hosting two virtual Local FireSmart Representative (LFR) workshops in June! Lock these dates in your calendar!
Over the last year, FireSmart Canada has worked to update and improve the FireSmart Canada Neighbourhood Recognition Program. The Neighbourhood Recognition Program officially recognizes neighbourhoods in Canada that have worked together to reduce the vulnerability of their neighbourhood to wildfire. The Local FireSmart Representative workshop equips participants with the tools and knowledge they will need to coordinate the Neighbourhood Recognition Program within their community and support their local FireSmart Neighbourhood Champions!
Registration for the two virtual LFR workshops will open soon and be offered on the following dates:
LFR Workshop #1 – June 9 & 10
