FireSmart Guidebook for Community Protection

The FireSmart Guidebook for Community Protection provides municipalities, municipal districts, Indigenous governments and other communities with strategies and planning measures to help reduce the risk from wildfire.

The Guidebook has been developed to help you get started with FireSmart planning.

The guidebook also outlines wildfire mitigation and preparedness measures communities can take to reduce risk and minimize the unwanted effects of wildfire. Community wildfire protection is a shared responsibility, and a collaborative approach is necessary to strengthen the NWT’s resiliency to the threat of wildfire.
