FireSmart Initiative – Anarchist Mountain
The Anarchist Mountain FireSmart Committee was created in 2013 ” to help our neighbours in protecting the community from wildfire”.
People living in forested areas need to be aware of the wildfire threat and ways they can take action to make their home and community become “FireSmart”.

Wildfire Hazard Assessment – Request
The hazard assessment form provides a point rating score for the condition of your home, surrounding structures, adjacent vegetation and other factors affecting the FireSmart status of your property. This will provide the homeowner with an action plan both short and long term to create a sustainable balance in a wildland urban interface setting.
To book an assessment you can contact Walter Zinowki, firstname.lastname@example.org.
