December 18, 2018

Approximately a year ago FNESS was contacted by the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction regarding the work FNESS was involved in with Fort Nelson First Nations, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality and FireSmart Canada on Home Partners Home Ignition Zone Assessments and use of UAVs to support the assessments. They became aware of this partnership initiative through communications with Partners in Protection Executive Director Kelly Johnson.

 

Cities adapt to extreme weather: Celebrating local leadership is the third book by the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction extolling local governments adapting to climate change and building more resilient communities. The three books include a total of 60 case studies describing local action in Canada that is consistent with best practices for climate resilience as identified by the Institute. The Institute is pleased to share these narratives praising successful local action. These communities are demonstrating their commitment to ‘get ahead’ of the risk damage from severe weather and climate change by building back better in recovery or through proactive investments in anticipation of future risks.”

 

The component documenting the Home Ignition Zone UAV Community with Fort Nelson First Nations initiative is documented on page 40.
