Help Us Produce A Community Wildfire Protection Plan

Published: Thursday, 23 February 2017

Can we take a few moments of your time?  Elk County is preparing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan.  This plan will eventually help identify areas at risk for a wildland fire; make recommendations for hazardous fuels treatments; prioritize areas for wildfire mitigation funding; and make recommendations for actions homeowners can take to reduce fire risk.

You can help in the creation of this plan by taking a short survey online regarding the area in which you live.  You can find more information and the survey here.  Please complete your survey by April 30, 2017.

Thank-you VERY much for your help !!!
