The most common causes of fires are cooking accidents, smoking (a leading cause of both home and wild fires), heating equipment, electrical appliances, candles, children playing with fire, faulty wiring and flammable liquids. Commercial and residential property is also at risk when a nearby building catches fire and during wildfire season.
When a fire occurs, it can result in both primary and secondary damage to property.
Summer brings wildfire season to many parts of Canada. The season generally runs from April to October, with peak activity between mid-May and August. Wildfires are a normal part of the forest ecosystem in some regions. Fire clears the forest floor of debris and opens it up to sunlight, allowing existing trees to grow stronger and healthier. Unfortunately, wildfires pose tremendous risk to communities located close to forests.
Here are 10 ways you can protect your property from a wildfire, whether you’re a commercial property owner, property manager or homeowner.
