Fuel Management and Hazard Reduction Program

There are two key components to the Nevada County Consolidated Fire District’s Fuel Management and Hazard Reduction Program:

  • The reduction of vegetative fuels surrounding dwellings

  • The reduction of vegetative fuels on undeveloped parcels.

The District’s primary enforcement efforts are focused in target areas. This provides the greatest benefit to the area by bringing all the undeveloped parcels into compliance and ensures the most effective use of limited personnel and funding. Selection of target areas are based upon the type and amount of vegetation, the number and size of undeveloped parcels, and topographical conditions that would affect fire behavior.
