FRIAA FireSmart Program

The program’s purpose is to provide for improved protection of forest communities, resources and values through operational and planning activities designed to prevent wildfire occurrence and to reduce fire hazard throughout Alberta. The program supplements the work already done through The FireSmart Community Grant Program sponsored by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Both aim to:

  • To support community involvement and ownership of the wildland/urban interface issues within municipal jurisdictions.
  • To provide financial assistance to those communities that wish to reduce the threat of wildfire.
