Douglas County Wildfire Action Collaborative (DCWAC)


Wildfires Happen. Are you Ready?

When asked what tops the list for achieving a high quality of life, our citizens and business community report that living and working in a safe community is what they value most.

That’s why our investment in this initiative is among the Board of Douglas County Commissioners’ highest priorities.

ARPA Authorized Expenditures for Wildfire Suppression and Mitigation

Helitack Team

Douglas County Office of Emergency Management proposes additional staffing devoted to the County’s Helitack Program. Douglas County is considering the application of ARPA funds for this purpose.
