Summit County Community Wildfire Protection Plan

May contain: advertisement, plant, vegetation, poster, land, nature, outdoors, tree, woodland, and grove

Officials from Summit County, local fire districts, state and federal forest agencies, towns and others joined forces to develop the community's wildfire protection plan. This national model for wildfire protection planning is an extension of the Healthy Forest Restoration Act authorized by Congress in 2003.

Since the plan's inception, the Wildfire Council and staff have continually reviewed and refined the SCCWPP to meet the community's changing needs concerning wildfire protection. The close collaboration between the county, the fire-protection districts, the Colorado State Forest, the U.S. Forest Service and the towns makes this an extremely effective program.
