Wildfire at your doorstep June 17th

Sunshine Coast ElderCollege

Sunshine Coast Community Forest


Wildfire at Your Doorstep

Free Event

Catastrophic fires occur in areas where the forest meets privately owned land – where we build our homes, businesses and infrastructure. This area of high risk is known as the urban interface and there are many areas of vulnerability on the lower Sunshine Coast. In 2018, we experienced our longest period of extreme fire hazard.

Moderated by Dave Lasser, Operations Manager of the Community Forest with your local fire chief in attendance, this timely event centres on a recent video featuring four speakers’ expert insights into risks and remedies specific to the lower Sunshine Coast.

Experts include Bruce Blackwell, BA Blackwell & Associates; Professor Lori Daniels, UBC Dept of Forest & Conservation Sciences;  Tom Bradley, Slocan Integral Forestry Co-operative; Brian McNaughton, Executive Director, Federation of BC Woodlots.

 You will learn:

• what the province can do

• what your community can do

• what you can do
