Wildfire Protection Plan
ln 2005, Clackamas County prepared a wildfire protection plan which included goals for reducing fire risk in parks managed by the North Clackamas Park and Recreation District (NCPRD) and Clackamas County. Now we are following up with an assessment of fire risk in parks, and developing plans for managing and reducing these risks.
A key goal of this project is to make park users more aware of the role fire can play in local ecosystems. Park managers will take responsible measures to reduce fire hazards, especially on lands most prone to burning. NCPRD and Clackamas County have assembled a team of experts to develop and implement this plan. The team includes fire district officials, foresters, ecologists, landscape architects and planners. This team will work with local communities to identify the best and most cost efficient ways to reduce wildfire risks.
