A COMMUNITY RESOURCE FOR FIRE SAFETY

South Fork Fuels Clearance Project/Evacuation Project
April 22-June 1
Tulare County Fire will be completing fuels clearance along each side of the South Fork Road, from Blossom Peak to Grouse Valley Road. This project will include brush and grasses removal, dead limb and tree removal, and pruning of trees. The purpose is to remove dangerous fuels to allow for safe evacuation.

WATCH FOR CHANGES!

Community-Wide Protection Plan (CWPP)

We are bringing in a Registered Professional Forester to do a community-wide landscape and risk survey (Three Rivers and Kaweah). This plan helps prepare for future fuels reduction projects, protection of native species, projects to remove of invasive species, evacuation as well as shelter-in-place planning and mapping. From the CWPP we develop our priorities and seek funding for projects.
