Free Community Wildfire Hazard Assessment coming up

Gisele Poliseno’s regular correspondence for the Watch Lake/South Green Lake area

Your local representative for Fire Smart Canada will be conducting a free Community Wildfire Hazard Assessment of our area starting April 15 to 19. The purpose of this is to do an overall assessment of our community, note all the concern points and correct them when a site assessment is completed. If you are a homeowner who has concerns with the wildfire hazard on or nearby property, you can become a Community Champion and take the initiative to participate with the Fire Smart Community Program and get the ball rolling. Your local representative for the community of Watch Lake and North Green Lake is Guy Poliseno. He may be reached at 250-395-9082 or email ggpoliseno@gmail.com. Further information on this program may be obtained on www.firesmartcanada.ca. Remember Fire Smart is a community affair. Let’s take care of it. Everyone is welcome to participate.
