Fire Prevention and Mitigation
The CCFZ has been working with other agencies, contractors, and representatives from communities-at-risk bordering public lands to develop Community Wildfire Prevention Plans to assist in the reduction of wildland fire in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). The CCFZ fire mitigation program also presents community outreach and education programs regarding “firewise” landscaping and provides publications for homeowners. More information on firewise landscaping can be found at the Firewise website. Prevention and mitigation activities for the Monticello Field Office are varied and include the posting of informational signs regarding fire hazards and/or closures as well as reaching out to the community through school presentations and other events such as county fairs to promote fire prevention awareness.
