Volunteers Needed to be FireSmart Champions

We have been recognized as a FireSmart Community and we are looking for FireSmart Champions to support the continued journey.

The land base we are involved with covers approximately 18,000 acres with roughly 450 developed acreages and growing. There are about 140 homes and this is increasing by about 20 per year. As you can see, it will be increasingly difficult for a small group to manage and be proactive. We are looking for Champions for the 9 Areas to align and work with the Fan Out Committee.

Once Champions are identified they will receive hands on training from existing members and receive a 4 hour workshop. You will be supported by a Team of approximately 10 Champions that meet monthly. The Areas requiring coverage are:

Area 1: Lower Hwy 3, Observation Rd & Hallis Rd

Area 2: Chapman Rd , Deerfoot & McGuire Rd

Area 3: Anarchist Place , Long Joe, Long View & Hewitt Rd

Area 4: Bullmoose & Cougar

Area 5: Blacktail, Whitetail, Grizzly, Bobcat & Bighorn

Area 6: Peregrine, Falcon, Mule Deer & Eagle Point: Richard Douziech

Area 7: Sasquatch: Chuck Harrison & Denis Thomson

Area 8: Wapiti, Caribou, Eagle Place & Kehoe

Area 9: Raven & Nine Mile: Walter Zinowki
