Hazard Mitigation

Back to all projects

WMSRDC began working on the Mason County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) in 2015. A CWPP is similar to a hazard mitigation plan, only more detailed and tailored specifically to wildfire. The Mason County plan will include a detailed assessment of wildfire risks and a prioritized action agenda for mitigating the effects of wildfire in Mason County. WMSRDC will work closely with stakeholders such as the United States Forest Service, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, local firefighters, and landowners to complete the plan. The project is expected to be complete in July 2016.
