Community Wildfire Protection Plan

Preparing for the threat of wildfire is a shared responsibility. From home owners, to industry and government we all have a responsibility to lessen the effects of wildfire. To learn more in this regard visit FireSmart Canada

The purpose of this Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is to identify the wildfire risks within and surrounding the community of Granisle, to describe the potential consequences if a wildfire was to impact the community, and to examine possible ways to reduce the wildfire risk. The goal is to define the threat to human life, property and critical infrastructure from wildfires in an identified area, identify measures necessary to mitigate those threats and outline a plan of action to implement the measures.

The CWPP planning process will provide the community with a detailed framework to inform the implementation of specific actions that will result in:

1. Reduced likelihood of a wildfire entering the community

2.Reduced impacts and losses to property and critical infranstructure

3. Reduced negative economic and social impacts to the community

4. Reduce the chance of a wildfire event impacting human life and safety.
