Today on the GetFireSmart Podcast we speak with Jennifer Rice, the Parliamentary Secretary of Emergency Preparedness for BC. On the show we discuss the current state of British Columbia and the importance for everyone to be engaged, prepared and educated on the threat of wildfire. 2021 has started off as a record year in reference to dry conditions and active fires and we discuss what people can do to get prepared and take action. We discuss with Parliamentary Secretary Rice the threat of wildfire as a true reality in British Columbia. We discuss why it is important to be educated on the risks and what people can do to be prepared and take action to protect their home and community. We discuss the role that FireSmart can play in getting people and homes prepared and the importance of starting today, and not waiting until it is too late. This is a great episode to learn from an expert on preparedness.
