Helping British Columbians Stay FireSmart™
Since 2021, BCAA has partnered with FireSmart BC to help educate British Columbians on wildfire preparedness and increasing access to their resources for those who live in remote, rural and most at-risk communities.
But as wildfires become more frequent and intense in British Columbia, we want to do even more to increase wildfire resilience across all parts of the province. That's why we're investing $750,000 into wildfire preparedness and prevention with FireSmart BC.
Our partnership will focus on the growth and success of FireSmart's Home Partners Program, where property owners can request a FREE home assessment with property-specific actions they can take to help reduce their wildfire risk – plus be eligible for a discount on BCAA Home Insurance*.
With the new investment from BCAA three key areas will be addressed to help tackle different barriers on a community’s roadmap to wildfire resiliency:
