Across BC, the BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative is hosting an agriculture and wildfire risk reduction workshop 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 for wildfire. 
Producers will have the opportunity to:
1) Learn local wildfire behavior, threat, and history, and how to apply lessons learned to structural protection 
2) Develop customized wildfire preparedness plans for your operations that outline what needs to occur before, during, and after a fire.
3) Connect with local government representatives responsible for wildfire and emergency planning, as well as local wildfire and emergency response personnel.
This workshop is free, with lunch and refreshments provided. Pre-registration can be completed here:
