GCHNA is a recognized Firewise USA Community.
Help is needed from residents for continued qualification.
To qualify, we are required to report on the ongoing work that residents do each year to reduce wildfire risks, while addressing the areas identified in the community wildfire assessment plan. We must must annually submit a renewal to maintain our “in good standing” status.
Our community’s effort to reduce wildfire risk each calendar year is reflected in the risk reduction investment of all the hours worked and dollars spent on our properties.
For 2020, 47 homeowners submitted their mitigation forms that totalled $411,240. This contribution, along with contributions from other Firewise communities, help in getting “in-kind” grants for Nevada County.
Fire Safe Mitigation forms are due each year by October 1.
Use the form as a guide as you perform defensible space work on your property this year, and then submit by mail or online.
You do not have to be a GCHNA Member to submit a Fire Mitigation Form.
