Naramata FireSmart chipping event
June 5, 2021
Times: 10:00am – 3:00pm

Smethurst/Arawana Neighbourhood FireSmart 

One of the easiest ways to protect your property from wildfire is to clear away branches and woody debris that can act as fire fuel.

To help property owners properly dispose of their debris, Naramata FireSmart has arranged for a mobile chipper to be on site in the Smethurst and Arawana neighbourhoods on Saturday June 5th.

  • 10 am to 12 noon: chipper travels from Naramata Road up Arawana, visiting Spruce, Ponderosa, Debeck, Upper Debeck and Juniper 
  • 12 to 1 pm: lunch for crew and repositioning of chipper
  • 1 pm to 3 pm: chipper travels from Naramata Road up Smethurst, visiting Albrecht, Lyons and homes along Smethurst up to the KVR trail

Need additional help? You can also arrange a visit by a local FireSmart Representative. They are trained to complete FireSmart assessments and make recommendations for actions to reduce the risk of wildfire damage to your property.

To enquire about an assessment, e-mail naramatafire@rdos.bc.ca and be sure to put “FireSmart Property Assessment” in your subject field.
