Press Release - Emergency Management

 
Curry Community Wildfire Protection Plan
1/4/2024
For Immediate Release

Curry County has contracted SWCA Environmental Consultants to develop a 2024 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). A CWPP is a plan designed to identify and mitigate wildfire hazards to communities and infrastructure located in the wildland-urban interface (WUI), which is an area located between wildland and human development. The CWPP makes recommendations for hazardous fuels reduction, public outreach and education, structural ignitability reduction, and fire response capabilities.

In 2008, Curry County completed its first CWPP. The development of the County CWPP has facilitated collaboration among local, state, federal officials, and tribes, as well as non-governmental stakeholders and private citizens. The “2008 Curry County CWPP” reviews, verifies, and/or identifies potential new priority areas where mitigation measures are needed to protect irreplaceable life, property, and critical infrastructure in the County, from wildfire.

A CWPP is designed to assist Curry County and landowners in ensuring that a future catastrophic wildfire is avoided or mitigated by assessing areas at risk and recommending measures to decrease those risks. For many years Curry County and partners have been successful in planning and implementing many wildfire mitigation actions, including thousands of acres of hazardous fuel treatment projects on public and private land; organizing public outreach and education campaigns that focus on wildfire prevention and the importance of defensible space; and better preparing communities that are at high to extreme risk of wildfire by utilizing the Fire Adapted Community concepts. Much of this work has been achieved through interagency collaboration, working with communities and across ownership boundaries to develop landscape-level wildfire mitigation solutions. This CWPP effort builds upon that long history of collaboration.

The Planning Team is continuing to work together to review and revise the original CWPP to ensure the plan is applicable to the communities it is designed to serve. The goal is that all recommended projects are designed to greatly reduce wildfire risk to residents and ensure that communities can live safely in this fire-prone environment.

Now it is time to review, revise, and refocus previously proposed implementation measures to ensure that the Curry County CWPP remains active and effective. Additionally, we want to hear from you to understand how Curry County can better plan and prepare for potential wildfires in your community. We kindly ask you to complete this brief survey: https://arcg.is/1i1ie50. This spring, the public will be invited to provide feedback on the Draft Plan.

The CWPP will be a guiding document for fire and emergency managers, as well as agencies who manage land within Curry County. The CWPP is designed to serve County residents, and we encourage your interest and engagement in the process. For more information, please contact Curry County Emergency Management at curryoem@co.curry.or.us, or Vicky Amato, Project Manager, at vamato@swca.com or Matt Cook, Assistant Project Manager at matthew.cook@swca.com.
