Deer Springs Ranch Wildfire Preparedness Plan
Over 600 of Utah’s communities have been classified as “at risk” of wildfire. The safety of the citizens of any community and the protection of private property and community infrastructure is a shared responsibility between the citizens; the owner, developer or association; and the local, county, state and federal governments. The primary responsibility, however, remains with the local government and the citizen/owner.
The purpose of wildfire preparedness planning is to…
Motivate and empower local government, communities, and property owners to organize, plan, and take action on issues impacting the safety and resilience of values at risk
Enhance levels of fire resilience and protection to the communities and infrastructure
Identify the threat of wildland fires in the area
Identify strategies to reduce the risks to structures, infrastructure and commerce in the community during a wildfire
Identify wildfire hazards, education, and mitigation actions needed to reduce risk
Transfer practical knowledge through collaboration between stakeholders toward common goals and objectives
