October 16, 2021
Times: 10:00am – 3:00pm

Email firesmart.naramata@gmail.com to pre-register for driveway pick up by October 14!

Being FireSmart is our shared responsibility and we all have a role to play in reducing the wildfire threat to our homes. Neighbours are encouraged to work together to limb, trim, rake, thin, and haul, flammable debris to the chipper for disposal. The chipper will be located at Manitou Park from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

  • Remove flammable coniferous shrubs and hedges, keep them at least a 10 metre radius from your home
  • Remove flammable ground cover such as bark and wood chips, keep them at least a 2 metre radius from your home
  • Store propane tanks and wood piles at least 10 metres away from your home

Following these FireSmart landscaping principles and more will have the greatest impact on reducing the risk of wildfire damage. Learn more tips at the event or by visiting https://firesmartbc.ca
