Public Comments sought for Community Wildfire Plan

The draft North Central Nebraska Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) for Boyd, Brown, Cherry, Holt, Keya Paha, and Rock Counties is ready for public review. Draft copies of the document have been mailed to county offices and are available to the public online at: CWPP/NCCWPP.pdf. Comments will be accepted until November 9, 2020.

County boards, emergency managers, fire department personnel, and other stakeholders worked with the Nebraska Forest Service to update the CWPP that the counties adopted in 2015. This plan is a wildfire-specific resource that coordinates with area emergency and hazard mitigation plans. Part of a statewide network of CWPPs, the plan provides information useful to local emergency responders and those from outside the area who provide mutual aid.
