Grand Rapids/Saratoga 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 Grand Rapids and Saratoga, local fire departments, Wood County, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) 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.
