Ten years after the Evergreen Fire Protection District had a community wildfire protection plan drawn up, the district says it’s made significant progress in implementing it in areas with moderate, high and extreme risk for wildfires.

In a presentation at the EFPD’s monthly board meeting Aug. 8, Evergreen Fire Marshal Frank Dearborn said that nearly all subdivisions in the district with extreme hazard ratings have drafted or completed a community wildfire protection plan, as well as about half of the subdivisions with high hazard ratings.

The CWPP calls for mitigation efforts that decrease the wildland fire risks, such as trimming trees, and removing shrubbery and loose ground materials that can both catch fire easily and travel quickly.

. . . Nearly 6,000 parcels in the area with a combined value of $2.89 billion have a high hazard rating, including homes in the Evergreen West, Hiwan Hills and Kittredge areas. An additional 1,512 parcels with a combined value of $787 million have a moderate hazard rating, and 557 parcels with a combined value of $229 million have an extreme rating, including homes in Echo Hills, Brook Forest Estates, Evergreen Hills and more.
