Thinking of building that dream home out in the wilderness or are you concerned about your home during a wildfire?
Sooke Fire and Rescue will host a Fire Smart workshop on June 15.
“Following what happened in Fort McMurray there seems to be lot of interest in this topic all of a sudden,” said Sooke Fire Chief Steven Sorensen.
During the presentation, fire crews will also do a demonstration on how to set up a sprinkler system to protect your home.
The event runs from 7 to 8 p.m. in the District of Sooke council chamber.
Sooke Fire and Rescue will also be hosting a fundraising event for Fort McMurray by holding a car wash at Edward Milne Community School on Saturday (June 11) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“There will be a bounce house for the kids while your car is being cleaned,” Sorensen said.
