FireSmart® Home Partners is a voluntary property assessment program that helps residents identify specific actions they can take on their property to reduce wildfire risks.

FireSmart® Home Partners Property Assessments provide residents:

  • A comprehensive, on-site assessment conducted by experienced fire professionals;
  • An opportunity for property owners to identify mitigation actions unique to their property;
  • A detailed follow up report with customized mitigation actions designed to measurably reduce the wildfire risk to your property;
  • An opportunity to earn FireSmart® Home Partners certificate acknowledging your mitigation achievements. The certificate is given upon successful completion of required mitigation actions and an on-site follow up inspection.
  • This type of recognition can be used to enhance real estate transactions by reassuring prospective buyers that the
    appropriate level of wildfire risk reduction has been achieved on the property.
  • The mitigation certificate can also be shared with local insurance providers to showcase mitigation activities and
    potentially increase a homeowner’s ability to maintain insurance coverage. FireSmart® Canada does not share the
    assessment or any details of the assessment with the insurance industry.
