Crook County Wildfire Protection Plan

The Healthy Forests Restoration Act, passed by Congress and signed into law in 2003, provides incentives for communities to engage in local forest planning and hazardous fuels management planning. In order for communities to take full advantage of this opportunity, a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) must first be completed.

The Crook County Wildfire Protection Plan documents this planning process in Crook County and includes the following components:

  • Background Information on the Community Wildfire Protection Plan purpose and process, community profile information and fire behavior in Crook County;
  • Risk assessment of communities and critical infrastructure;
  • Recommendations to reduce structural ignitability and address issues associated with unprotected lands within the county;
  • Summaries of communities, critical infrastructure, hazard reduction priorities and funding priorities;
  • Recommendations for plan implementation, monitoring and annual review to assess and document accomplishment, short-fall, revised initiatives, and to identify new challenges and opportunities for community wildfire planning.
