A two-day collaborative workshop aiming to help area fire fighters from the City of Yellowknife and the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) better prepare for wildfires in Dettah, was held last Thursday and Friday.

About 20 participants took part in the workshop that included members of the city’s fire division as well as fire fighters from YKDFN. There were also representatives from the city’s public works and engineering and community services departments in attendance.

The event was an initiative that came about after Yellowknife, Dettah and Ndilo received more than $176,000 in federal funding from the Climate Change Preparedness in the North Program (CCPNP).

The two day event was intended to build training capacity between the municipality and the First Nation to fight wildfires that could directly advance on communities – what is known as wildland urban interface –  due to climate change.
