Full scale fuels and project work started in 2017 for Elk Creek Fire District - however, in 2020 the decision was made to form a separate crew that could service both Inter-Canyon and Elk Creek Fire Protection Districts. This crew was established to meet the demands of reducing fuel and preparing for wildfire in one of the highest risk WUI (Wildland Urban Interface) communities in the state, and in the country. The Fuels Crew operates the public chipping program, conducts thinning projects, runs our fuels sampling program, and responds to local and mutual aid wildland fires.
The Fuels Crew has completed hiring for the 2022 Season. We look forward to your application next season!
