FireSmart Information Day - Twin Lakes
October 17, 2021
Times: 10:00am – 1:00pm

Meet at the Community Mailboxes at the corner of Twin Lakes Road and Highway 3A

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 learn about what it means to be FireSmart and FireSmart landscaping principles. Come meet Andy Jeeves and Lucas Knoll, the FireSmart reps in your area!

  • 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
