Title: Josephine County Integrated Fire Plan: 2006 Annual Report and Updated Action Plan
Author: University of Oregon. Institute for a Sustainable Environment. Resource Innovations
Abstract: In 2002, the Biscuit Fire burned over 500,000 acres and resulted in costs exceeding 150 million dollars. A majority of the acres burned in Josephine County, Oregon. Lessons learned from the fire resulted in the development of an Integrated Fire Plan for the county that addressed wildfire risk, hazardous fuels reduction, emergency management, and education. On November 8th, 2004 the Josephine County (OR) Board of County Commissioners adopted the Josephine County Integrated Fire Plan (JCIFP). Since that time, partners involved with the JCIFP have remained active in implementing the fire plan, as well as expanding efforts beyond initial objectives to pursue stewardship contracting, biomass utilization, and other efforts. This report illustrates the accomplishments and lessons learned from the second year of implementing the JCIFP. The report also includes an updated action plan and list of priority fuels reduction projects.
