The Bowen Island Fire Department encourages residents to take steps to protect your home from wildfire. The FireSmart program can help you figure out how.
Many residential dwellings on Bowen Island are surrounded by dense forest and low-lying brush, increasing the vulnerability to wildfire spread.
We are offering FREE workshops in 2018 and 2019 to get Bowen Island residents familiar with and participating in the FireSmart program. Get your neighbours together and host in your home, or we can host groups at the fire hall.
Residents that take steps to FireSmart their properties are eligible for FREE green waste disposal.
