Tahsis Residential Firesmart Survey


Do you want to identify potential wildfire hazards that might exist around your home and property?

FireSmart Home Assessments are an opportunity for you to learn about wildfire risk and receive a list of recommendations that will help protect your home and property in the event of a wildfire. The Tahsis Fire Department will provide this service free-of-charge to ensure residents are educated and informed on best practices when it comes to wildfire risk reduction.

You can book a FireSmart Home Assessment by contacting 250-934-6666 or

Once you request your assessment, a Local Fire Smart Representative from the Tahsis Fire Department will come to perform a 30-minute assessment of the exterior of your home and property with you.

After the assessment, you will receive a copy of the assessment with suggested actions. This report will:

  • Outline any wildfire hazards found during the assessment.
  • Provide property-specific nonmandatory recommendations on how to mitigate any hazards identified.

Note: The Village is trying to complete at least 25 assessments before March 19th to help the Village apply for grant funding that may assist residents with the cost of labour to FireSmart your home and property.

Please help by booking your assessment today and completing the short 1-minute survey below.
