Structural Fire Engagement Session

Structural Fire Engagement Session

Are you concerned about fire safety in your community homes and buildings? Would you like to reduce the incidence of structural fires? If so, join us for one of the Structural Fire Engagement Sessions happening across BC!

The First Nations Emergency Services Society (FNESS) is working with Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) to improve the delivery of structural fire services within First Nations communities in B.C. These engagement sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Highlight structural fire support and capacity needs in their community;
  • Assess which FNESS and ISC programs are most relevant to their community and where there are gaps in service delivery; and
  • Determine how the Fire Safety Assessment (FSA) could become a more valuable tool in their community.

WHO should attend?

First Nations (e.g. Chief and Council, Fire Chiefs, Deputy Fire Chiefs, Fire Champions, Fire Fighters) and

Fire-Related Service Organizations (e.g. Provincial and Municipal Fire Services, Non-Governmental Organizations, BC Fire Chiefs Association)


Join us for one of the 1 ½ day workshops on structural fire services to be held across the province (Terrace, Prince Rupert, Richmond, Victoria, Cranbrook, and Kelowna) between September and November 2018 ( Register for the session at the location that works best for you.
