WREC Utah Wildfire Mitigation Assessment 2021
Due to the escalation of devastating wildfires in the West, the Utah legislature enacted legislation (H.B. 66) which mandates that all Consumer-Owned Utilities (COUs) establish Wildland Fire Protection Plans (WFPPs). This assessment is intended to be a guide for the future development of a WFPP by capturing the existing operations programs and recommending additional activities geared toward improving wildfire mitigation efforts. We welcome public comments to help guide this process.
