Fire Awareness

FOCA FireSmart Program

Every year the MNR responds to over 1350 wildfires, half of those caused by humans. The majority of human caused wildfires are due to careless burning practices and failure to control and extinguish campfires, grass and brush fires.

FOCA and the MNR have partnered together to bring cottagers the information and resources they need to Be FireSmart at their cottage and in their communities. To learn more visit the FireSmart page of the FOCA website
