DUCHESNE COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT


​COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS PLAN


Catastrophic wildfires in the Intermountain West are growing in impact and cost. Recognizing this, the Utah Legislature passed Senate Bill 122 (Wildland Fire Policy Updates) in 2016, which establishes a program that aims to lower the financial risk for communities that implement prevention, preparedness, and mitigation actions that are proven to reduce the risk and costs of wildland fire. The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands (FFSL) has been charged to administer the program. Duchesne County has committed to participate in this program and selected Rural Community Consultants (RCC) to assist the county in preparing a Community Wildfire Preparedness Plan (CWPP). The following three-step process is being implemented to develop the CWPP, including: data gathering, public input, and plan adoption.

FIRE  DANGERS  on  the  RANCH


Very warm temps, low RH, and strong winds will combine, resulting in elevated fire danger.  The strong variable winds will continue, and due to recent absence of rain, fine and medium size fuels are nearing record low dryness for this time of year.  It is not advisable to do any outside burning or campfires. 
Be safe.

PLEASE  TAKE  HEED.

​​​ROADS:​​

Our roads are being torn up by people doing donuts or burn outs with their atvs etc.  It is very expensive to repair our roads!  Please do not treat our roads as a playground!  It is up to all of us to make sure any of our guests or family members understand this as well.  If extra road work is needed due to negligence, then expect the yearly dues to increase!
