Tips and Resources

BCAA FireSmart Initiative

As wildfires become more frequent and intense in British Columbia, we are doing even more to increase wildfire resilience across all parts of the province by investing $250,000 annually into wildfire prevention & preparedness with FireSmart BC.

The BCAA FireSmart Initiative will address three key areas to help tackle different barriers on a community’s roadmap to wildfire preparedness:

Community Outreach

Increase proactive, educational outreach to at risk, remote and under supported communities by fire prevention experts to help them stand up and sustain FireSmart BC programs.

Home Updates
Resource Development

Develop and distribute educational resources for community leaders exploring FireSmart BC programming for their communities.

Award Winning
Community Grant

Provide financial support to property owners for FireSmart BC fire resiliency solutions/programs.

Our partnership will also focus on the growth and success of FireSmart's Home Partners Program – a research based and proven solution to significantly lower property wildfire risk. Owners can request a FREE home assessment with property-specific actions they can take to protect their home from wildfire – plus be eligible for a discount on BCAA Home Insurance*.
