Thank you to all GCHNA neighbors
who keep your property as fire-safe as possible!
GCHNA IS A RECOGNIZED FIRESAFE COMMUNITY
Help is needed yearly from residents for continued qualification.
To continue to qualify as a Firewise Community, each year we are required to report on the ongoing work that residents do 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 our certificate renewal in 2023, 105 households, plus Nevada City and the BYLT submitted forms on behalf of our neighborhood. All together we reported $645,000 in cash expenditures. The credit we received for hours spent was $2,360,000. Grand total: $3,005,000!
This contribution demonstrates the strong commitment of our community to create defensible space and reduce the threat of wildfire. Mitigation totals reported by GCHNA and other local Firewise communities help in getting “in-kind” grants for Nevada County.
