Big Flats/Monroe Community Wildfire Protection Plan 2010

This plan is a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) as defined in Title 1 of the Healthy Forest Restoration Act (HFRA) of 2003. The purpose of this CWPP is to provide the Towns of Big Flats and Monroe, Big Flats Fire Department, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), and other partners with information and tools to help them reduce potential risks associated with wildfires and to collaboratively identify wildfire mitigation actions that will provide solutions to address the impacts of wildfire hazards. The plan will also assist the citizens of the two towns to prevent wildfires and be better prepared to deal with wildfire hazards. The plan develops strategies aimed at protecting life, property, and the natural environment.

Adams County All Hazards Mitigation Plan Update 2009

The development of the Adams County All Hazards Mitigation Plan Update is a response to the passage of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K). On October 30, 2000, DMA2K was signed into law by the U.S. Congress in an attempt to stem the losses from disasters, reduce future public and private expenditures, and to speed up response and recovery from disasters. This Act (Public Law 106-390) amended the Robert T. Stafford Relief and Emergency
Assistance Act.
