FireSmart Farms and Ranches

FireSmart Agricultural Program

The goal of the FireSmart Agriculture Program is to promote wildfire awareness, conduct FireSmart assessments and, where eligible, mitigate ranches and farms that are in a high wildfire interface area.

We offer FireSmart hazard assessments to those who operate Farms and Ranch lands within the Cowichan Valley including CVRD, Municipality of North Cowichan and Cowichan Tribes residents.
