Piers Island Emergency Program will have their representatives ready at 10 am at the Firehall to assist you with getting set on the PANS program to receive emergency alerts. They are also kindly providing coffee and treats. They will confirm that you are signed up for the local emergency alert system. Prizes from the week long Preparedness Contest will be awarded after the FireSmart presentation.
At 10:30 am we begin our FireSmart Landscaping Presentation. FireSmart BC has developed a new Landscaping Guide for BC. Piers Island's Brent Schorr has played a major role in consulting on this project with them. Brent will share his presentation with us and we have these new booklets for distribution.
We've been saving up for this special event and have wonderful prizes for those in attendance so be sure to come out. FireSmart Canada has also contributed $500 towards our event. We've got a Grand Prize of a $500 Gift Certificate at Peninsula Landscaping, a WORX rechargeable pruner/chainsaw and we'll have lots of native plants (FireSmart ones of course) from Russell Nursery to give out during the presentation. You must be in attendance to win!
Thank you for your FireSmart efforts all year round and we look forward to seeing you Saturday May 7th - 10 AM at the new Fire Hall. Distancing may not be possible so please bring your mask.
Your FireSmart Board
