County Wildfire Protection Plan
The Community Wildfire Protection Plan, CWPP, provides details on the risks, hazards, and valuable facilities to protect in case of a wildfire. Harney County received grant monies from the US Department of the Interior (BLM administered) to conduct this planning effort. Review the materials and see how this effort might help your property here in the County.
