Agriculture Wildfire Workshop

Agriculture Wildfire Workshop

On January 18th from 8:30am – 3:00pm at the Prestige Harbour Inn (251 Harbour Front Dr NE, Salmon Arm, BC V1E 2W), the BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative is hosting an agriculture and wildfire risk reduction workshop 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:

  • Learn local wildfire behavior, threat, and history, and how to apply lessons learned to structural protection
  • Develop customized wildfire preparedness plans for your operations that outline what needs to occur before, during, and after a fire.
  • Connect with local government representatives responsible for wildfire and emergency planning, as well as local wildfire and emergency response personnel.

This workshop is free, with lunch and refreshments provided.  For catering and planning purposes please, pre-register here: https://bcwildfirepreparedness2019.eventbrite.com
