What is FireSmart?
FireSmart is the Canadian standard for home wildfire preparedness. FireSmart practices are based on scientific evidence. At risk homes during a wildfire with zero FireSmart preparedness have a 5% - 10% chance of escaping damages. With treatment the same home can have up to a 90% survival rate.
