Community FireSmart Programs


Rebate Program

In order to help homeowners with the cost of making FireSmart improvements to their properties, The City of Nelson is offering rebates for eligible FireSmart activities.  To qualify for rebates, homeowners must first obtain a FireSmart Home Ignition Zone Assessment, complete with a list of recommendations.  These recommendations can be completed by the homeowners themselves or with the use of contractors.  Once some or all of the projects are completed, a follow-up assessment will be conducted with rebates issued afterward.  Currently, rebates are limited to 50% of the total cost of eligible activities up to a maximum, set yearly.  Some restrictions apply. 

All FireSmart Program funding is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

For questions or comments regarding the rebate program, please contact our FireSmart coordinator at or by calling 250-352-8116.
