 What is FireSmart you ask? FireSmart is about Individual homeowners (private land owners) and the wider community taking simple steps to reduce the impact of wildfires within their neighbourhood and community. The District of Clearwater has recently been successful in obtaining a grant to work towards becoming a FireSmart Community – this can be achieved by educating our community on FireSmart practices.

The District is looking for neighbourhood point persons to participate in a steering committee of volunteer representatives to be responsible for driving FireSmart initiatives in Clearwater throughout 2016.

We are looking for point persons from the following high priority neighbourhoods:

  • Wyndhaven Subdivision
  • Fawn Road/Lake Summit
  • Greer Subdivision
  • Raft River Area
  • Sunshine Valley

The District will be accepting Letter of Interest by 4:00 p.m. February 1st, 2016 from volunteers who are interested in putting their name forth to serve on the FireSmart Steering Committee.
