Help your neighborhood become "FIREWISE". Fire is a recognizable danger our community faces every day. The Town of Dewey-Humboldt is cooperating with the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA) and Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission (PAWUIC) in achieving FIREWISE certification for the Town, starting with two neighborhoods (NorthEast Foothills and Blue Hills, click to view map area). A number of property owners have had their properties assessed by CAFMA and are qualifying for grant funding to complete abatement of fire hazards. The Firewise Board has submitted their application for certification to the National Firewise Commission, and expect to receive notice of their certification the first of 2017. Certification willl place the Firewise Board in a position to partner with PAWUIC, CAFMA and others to apply for grant funding to do abatement.
The FIREWISE board is meeting the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., at the Town Hall Council Chambers at 2735 S. Highway 69, in Humboldt at the corner of Main and Highway 69. Please plan on attending. Call Steven Brown at 928-632-7362, to learn how to participate in the program and make your neighborhood "FIREWISE".
Dewey-Humboldt Begins Work on Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
A planning team of representatives of Yavapai County incorporated and unincorporated regions are participating in a County-wide hazard mitigation planning update process. The purpose of this process is to update the current 2011 County Hazard Mitigation Plan, previously approved by FEMA on 9/12/2011. Local, County, Tribal and State governments are required to have a FEMA approved Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to be eligible for Federal Hazard Mitigation Grant funds and in some cases, other types of disaster funding. The plan focuses on the communities' most threatening hazards and establishes a strategy to reduce the impact from those hazards to protect the people and property of Yavapai County and to create more resilient communities. The Planning Team anticipates having a plan draft in November 2016, at which time public access to the updated plan draft will be provided, with the opportunity to again comment.
