A news release from the city says the annual event is meant to give the community a chance to brush up on FireSmart principles in time for the 2024 wildfire season.

West Kelowna Fire Rescue firefighters, city staff and others will be on site to answer questions about how people can prepare their homes for the fire season.

Although the event is free, attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food donation in support of the local food bank.

Old Okanagan Highway, between Drought and Apollo Roads, and Apollo Road at Old Okanagan Highway, will be closed from 10 am to 3 pm to accommodate the event.

However, access to businesses and homes in the area will be maintained.
