Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014 7B Plumas County Fire Safe Council fuel reduction projects result in an open forest that is less The same forest area before treatment shows dense fuels, which would encourage bigger fires susceptible to damage by wildfire, and create unsafe conditions for firefighters. County Fire Safe Council secures PG&E grant funding The Plumas County Fire Safe Council has secured funding to help Plumas County residents reduce their vulnerability to wildfire. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. has granted $103,000 to fund three fuel reduction programs administered by the council. The council is currently coordinating with local property owners and has hired local contractors to implement theseprojects. In response to the extreme drought conditions causing high fire risk, PG&E has developed a fund to award grants to provide fire prevention measures to communities and to reduce the threat of wildfire this fire season. The PG&E grants have been awarded to a variety of groups across the state, including the Plumas County and Lassen County fire safe councils. Program background Three projects in Plumas County have been awarded grants that will be administered by the Plumas County Fire Safe Council. These funds will enable the council to increase the total acres of treatment on two community hazardous fuel reduction projects that were already planned; one is taking place along North Valley Road in Indian Valley, and the other istaking place along the Quincy-La Porte Road near Cutler Meadows. In order to encourage Plumas National Forest continues fire restrictions Fire restrictions are being eased for some recreation sites but other restrictions remain in place for the Plumas National Forest (public land). "Effective Oct. 3, we're allowing campfires in more of our campgrounds to support fall recreationists, particularly hunters," said Earl Ford, forest supervisor. Camping areas are available with minimal services in most areas although hosted sites run by concessionaires are largely closed for the season. All other fire restrictions remain in effect, including those dealing with fires outside of designated sites, smoking, use of welding equipment and explosives and the use of fireworks. Woodcutting is currently allowed within the Plumas National Forest (public land) if the daffy fire indices permit. To determine if woodcutting is permitted, woodcutters may call 800-847-7766 prior to 4:30 p.m. on the day they plan to cut wood. For information about fire restrictions on private land, residents should call their local California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) or city offices. For more information about fire restrictions, designated recreation sites and firewood cutting on the Plumas National Forest, contact a local Forest Service office: Beckwourth Ranger District (Portola/Milford area), 836-2575; Feather River Ranger District (Oroville/Challenge area), 534-6500; Mt.

This pilot program has been developed to assist landowners who are having a difficult time disposing of materials resulting from yard cleanup projects such as cleaning out gutters, pruning trees and raking forest debris that has accumulated near their homes. Due to limited funding and capacity, the council is working with the four Firewise communities in the county -- Lake Almanor Country Club, Lake Almanor West, Gold Mountain and the Graeagle Fire Protection District -- as well as two other communities that are taking steps to become recognized as Firewise (Mohawk Vista and Greenhorn Ranch). If the program is successful the council will work to secure additional funds to provide this service to additional communities in Plumas County in the future. For more information on the Plumas County Fire Safe Council, or to explore options the council has to help individuals and communities, visit plumasfiresafe.org or call 283-0829. Information on the Firewise program is available at firewise.org. For more information about PG&E visit pge.com. A chipping crew demonstrates one way to dispose of green waste.
