The BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative is hosting multiple workshops over the next two months that support adaptation and wildfire planning for agriculture across BC. The workshops are aimed at agricultural producers from all sectors, wildfire response and emergency personnel, and local government representatives. Producers will gain vital knowledge to prepare themselves and their operations, and to maximize the efficacy and safety of local emergency response in the event of fire. Producers will have the opportunity to:

1) Reduce your risk from the climate change impacts of more frequent and higher intensity wildfires.

2) Connect with local government representatives responsible for wildfire and emergency planning, as well as local wildfire and emergency response personnel.

3) Learn local wildfire behaviour, threat, and history, and how to apply lessons learned to structural protection.

4) Develop customized wildfire preparedness plans that outline what needs to occur before, during, and after a fire.

All workshops are free, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Dates and locations are listed here;
