Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit

Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit
Last year, British Columbia experienced its worst wildfire season in recorded history. As we look to recover from the unprecedented wildfires of 2023, communities across B.C. have a unique opportunity to bolster their resiliency by upgrading their infrastucture with FireSmart principles in mind. On April 20-24, more than 700 firefighting professionals, FireSmart experts and Indigenous, municipal and community leaders will gather in Prince George for the 2024 Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit. There, they’ll share lessons learned from 2023, along with the latest research, technologies, best practices and other information to help regions and communities prepare for the upcoming wildfire season.
 
The theme for this year’s Summit is Recover, Rebuild, Prepare. Our five-day gathering in Prince George will kick off with two days of training for firefighting professionals, followed by a three-day conference with keynote addresses, expert panels, workshops, training programs and valuable networking opportunities.
 
As the B.C. organization dedicated to building wildfire resiliency and reducing the negative impacts of fire for everyone in the province, FireSmart BC is especially interested in having municipal leaders join us in Prince George. In addition to mayors and councillors, we look forward to registrations from city staff members with responsibilities related to engineering, planning, risk management, sustainability, emergency services and other functions. We hope you can join BC’s firefighters and FireSmart community as we work together to keep B.C. communities safe and fire-resilient
