Title: Josephine County Integrated Fire Plan lessons learned: an evaluation of the planning process
Author: University of Oregon. Institute for a Sustainable Environment. Resource Innovations
Abstract: Josephine County officials initiated development of the Josephine County Integrated Fire Plan (JCIFP) in July 2003, along with several federal, state, and local partners. The Plan mission is to protect against potential losses to life, property, and natural resources from wildfire. After more than a year of coordination, the Josephine County Board of Commissioners officially adopted the JCIFP in November 2004. Upon completion of the document, Resource Innovations set out to identify some of the successes and challenges of the JCIFP process. This report seeks to assist those implementing the Plan by: 1) strengthening internal communication; 2) describing outcomes that partners most want accomplished in 2005 and beyond; and 3) offering recommendations on how partners can maintain an effective and collaborative process long into the future. Moreover, this evaluation will provide a baseline analysis that can be used in future evaluations to identify how partners perceive the effectiveness of the JCIFP over time. This evaluation profiles survey participants, provides a summary of survey results and evaluates the planning process used in developing the JCIFP. This section also highlights recommendations for sustaining an effective and comprehensive wildfire protection plan in Josephine County.
