This winter, the BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative are hosting agriculture and wildfire risk reduction workshops aimed at agricultural producers from all sectors, wildfire response and emergency personnel, and local government representatives. Producers will gain vital knowledge to prepare themselves and their operations for wildfire.
Producers will have the opportunity to:
1) Learn local wildfire behavior, threat, and history, and how to apply lessons learned to structural protection
2) Develop customized wildfire preparedness plans for your operations that outline what needs to occur before, during, and after a fire.
3) Connect with local government representatives responsible for wildfire and emergency planning, as well as local wildfire and emergency response personnel.
These workshops are free, with lunch and refreshments provided. For catering and planning purposes please, pre-register here: bcwildfirepreparedness.eventbrite.com. Please share this information with your networks. Note that all workshops run from 8:30am-3:00pm pst.
Dates and locations are listed in the attached PDF. If you would like a poster for any of these specific workshops, please contact me and I will provide you with a PDF or JPEG copy.
