2022 FireSmart BC Conference: Building Collaboration and Community - May 11-12, 2022 - Kamloops, BC

The 2022 FireSmart BC ConferenceBuilding Collaboration and Community will bring together wildfire practitioners from all over BC and beyond. Speakers and workshops will investigate how to make BC homes, communities and the landscape more wildfire-resilient in the future. This conference will focus on collaboration, community-led initiatives, wildfire management, prevention, ecology and wildfire resiliency research in British Columbia. BC has a diversity of fire-prone environments that bring a unique perspective to wildland fire challenges and opportunities.

The conference is open to all participants, but will be of special interest to firefighters, First Nations and local government staff who are implementing FireSmart initiatives within their communities using Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) funding. Wildland–urban interface (WUI) specialists (e.g. RPFs, RFTs, consultants, contractors, and other land specialists), landscape management agencies, rural or urban planners/managers, Office of the Fire Commissioner staff, emergency management staff, wildfire management staff, Local FireSmart Representatives and Wildfire Mitigation Specialists will also find the conference useful and informative.
