Nevada City, CA—Now through August 31st, the County of Nevada Office of Emergency Services (OES) is collecting feedback through the Community Wildfire Protection Plan Survey. All are encouraged to take the survey which may be found online at or in person at a number of events this summer.

Roadmap to Resilience

To address the reality of wildfire, OES is launching a community-wide effort to develop a Roadmap to Resilience. The roadmap consists of three core plans – the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, the Community Wildfire Protection Plan, and an Evacuation Study. These planning efforts involve working closely with residents and community partners to ensure that the hazards facing the county are articulated accurately, that priorities are identified collaboratively, and that the resultant recommendations are actionable.
