dc.description.abstract There are mounting concerns about individual and community preparedness for disasters in part because disasters are increasing in numbers. Circumstances such as pine beetle infestations, climate change and an increased number of homes in forested areas contribute to the increased number of disasters and their impacts. In order to understand community response to wildfires, a mixed method study was conducted (2008-2010) in two communities in western Canada (Barriere, British Columbia and La Ronge, Saskatchewan) ( These two communities were selected since they had endured wildfires that resulted in community evacuation with significant loss of property (McClure fire in BC, 2003; and, Mallard fire in SK, in 1999). Coaldale, Alberta was chosen as a comparison community that had not experienced a recent natural disaster and was of similar size to Barriere and La Ronge. en
