FireSmart Community Series - Working Towards a Resilient Alberta
October 2 - 4, 2018
MacDonald Island Conference Centre, Fort McMurray, Alberta
Every two years, the Alberta Wildfire Management Branch puts on the FireSmart Community Series. This event brings municipal and Indigenous community leaders, fire departments, mitigation experts and government staff together to network and learn about the innovative approaches to the FireSmart program that are taking place across Alberta.
Over the last two years, Fort McMurray Forest Area staff and our Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo community partners have demonstrated incredible resilience as they navigate their recovery process, from a FireSmart perspective. We are extremely pleased to host the Community Series in Fort McMurray, as it will provide the opportunity to showcase the incredible work that is taking place, across all seven FireSmart disciplines.
