Do you live in Washakie County and want to know more about how to keep your property safer from wildfire this summer?
We can help!
Come on up to our annual picnic at the Willow Park Group Area (map below) on Saturday, June 15, to hear from agency representatives and the Washakie County Firesmart Coordinator about wildfire preparedness. And get a free BBQ lunch by Chubby Cheeks BBQ! It all starts at 11. More about this on our Facebook page.
You can also request a Firesmart Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP) for your property. We will come to you and prepare a plan for your property. Those with approved WMPs in Washakie County may be eligible for cost sharing funds, so you can get help paying for needed mitigation. Home or cabin owners with an approved WMP are also eligible to get free tree pruning within the Home Ignition Zone One (HIZ1, up to 30 feet from your home or cabin), as noted in your WMP.
It’s easy to request a WMP. Just download and complete the form here, sign it, and send it back to us, either by snail mail or email. We’ll contact you to set up a time to come out.
