The Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit is a five-day gathering formally known independently as the FireSmart BC Conference and the WUI Symposium. The week-long focus on community wildfire resiliency and wildland urban interface training will kick off with a three-day in person conference at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, where attendees will listen to captivating speakers who are leaders in wildfire resiliency. Best practices will also be shared, as well as collective experiences and insights through informative workshops, and expert panels. This will be followed by two days of training exercises in North Vancouver for BC’s firefighting professionals.

The theme for this year’s event is Partners in Progress, which recognizes that collaboration and partnerships are critical for keeping BC communities safe and building fire resiliency. The event will include a full day devoted to bringing BC’s firefighters and FireSmart community together on May 12.
