Evergreen CWPP


Evergreen Community Wildfire Protection Plan

This document provides a wildfire risk analysis for Evergreen Fire Protection District in accordance with Title I of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA) passed by Congress on November 21, 2003, and signed into law by President Bush on December 3, 2003. This plan includes mitigation and implementation recommendations, as well as an analysis of evacuation and post-fire modeling. The 2020 CWPP is a complete update of the 2007 Evergreen CWPP to address a changing landscape and advances in fire science. This document is to be utilized as a tool by the community and local partners to begin prioritizing projects that make Evergreen a safer and more resilient community. 

This CWPP was developed in partnership with Evergreen Fire Rescue (EFR) by The Forest Stewards Guild and Anchor Point Group. Anchor Point developed a proprietary wildfire hazard and risk assessment tool called No-HARM to help assess wildland fuels and topography. This No-HARM web map is available to the public at the top of the blue bar on the right side of this webpage. It depicts the risk ranking of each community within the fire protection district.  

The Forest Stewards Guild developed new products using metrics gathered from loss of life events throughout the country that will help focus Evergreen’s emergency planning. The Guild also gathered community and stakeholder input which was used to assess neighborhood level needs. Those analysis provided roadway survivability and evacuation congestion locations, predicted using fire intensity and projected traffic flow. These tools will provide Evergreen residents an introduction into wildfire risk/mitigation and will provide community leaders a clear path forward to ensure community safety. 

Public Comment was open from July 1st to July 26th and a public meeting was held over video on August 10th. You can watch the video presentation or view the presentation slides.
