Community Wildfire Protection Program
Reduce Hazardous Fuels
The Diamond Peak Planning Area is within the Defense and Threat Zones of the Wildland-Urban Interface of Incline Village, Nevada. Adjacent high density residential developments include Tyrolian Village and Bitterbrush Condominiums. A fire in the area could restrict the limited evacuation routes for the 500 nearby residences. Fuel reduction treatments provide a safer working environment for firefighters, protect public evacuation routes, and introduce tactical opportunities to redirect a fire approaching from the south. There are 130.5 treatable acres within the larger project area. Smaller projects will serve to treat these acres over time and as funding can be secured.
Acres of Forest Fuels Reduction Treatment: 68.31 acres
