Wawanesa Community Wildfire Prevention Grant

Posted on
The Edson Fire Department (EFD) is receiving some funding through a special wildfire grant.
We’re excited to be one of 12 communities across Canada receiving the Wawanesa Community Wildfire Prevention Grants in 2024.
EFD has secured $15,000, which will go towards the creation of a new Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) as well as a geographic information system map for the Town of Edson to easily identify wildfire threats, while offering effective prevention and mitigation strategies for the ongoing safety of the town and its residents.
Thank you Wawanesa, FireSmartCanada, and the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction for selecting the Edson Fire Department as a recipient!
