Fire plan adopted by board

Fire-prone Nevada County now has its first fire plan.

After 11 months of community meetings and workshops, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors approved the plan Tuesday with just a few minor modifications and overwhelming support from more than 70 residents.

The plan is meant to serve as a prescription for how residents can make their homes and properties safe from a wildland fire disaster.

There are 42 recommendations that made up a collaborative effort between residents and the five-member committee, which consisted of Tony Clarabut of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Nevada County Consolidated Fire District Chief Tim Fike, U.S. Forest Service Division Chief Gary Fildes, Rich Reader of the Nevada County Office of Emergency Services, and Jeff Dunning of the Nevada County Fire Safe Council.
