APPI Webinar - FireSmart Alberta Challenges and Opportunities

This webinar will provide an introduction to FireSmart in Alberta. Whether in the design stage, building, or performing renovations, there are many ways land use planning and development standards can help protect homes and communities from wildfires. Effective local government land use planning can support community wildfire resiliency and infrastructure survivability. Learn about FireSmart Alberta and our vision to support communities in Alberta to live resiliently with wildfire.
