FireSmart

Preparing for the threat of wildfire takes an entire community working together. The Resort Municipality of Whistler's Emergency Program, Whistler Fire Rescue Service, the Province of B.C. and resort partners all work together to prepare and lessen the effects of wildfire.

The most important piece, however, is you. Take simple steps to make your property or business FireSmart, pay attention to fire danger ratings including fire bans, report all wildfires, and reduce the chance of wildfire spreading in our community.

Wildfire Preparedness and Response

The Resort Municipality of Whistler has taken steps to reduce the risk of wildfire through the Wildfire Protection Strategy, adopted in January 2017. Report all wildfires to *5555 on your cell.


FireSmart Your Home

Airborne embers fly with the wind and can land in your yard, on your roof, or on the trees against your house. Help reduce the potential spread of wildfire by making your home FireSmart.


If you see a wildfire call 9-1-1 in Whistler. Outside of Whistler call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell phone.
