Deadwood to Participate in Wildfire Risk Reduction Program

Deadwood has been selected to participate in the Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) program, according to the Black Hills Pioneer. Deadwood is one of eight communities across the nation that will receive technical assistance in combating the costs and risks associated with wildfires.

The city will work alongside land use planners, foresters, and other specialists on a consulting basis to develop a local plan to improve wildfire policies. The value of services provided to the city is estimated between $30-40,000. The program is slated to begin in January 2018.
