Hazardous Fuels Reduction

Fuels reduction reduces the risk of catastrophic wildland fire in the community of the Bishop Paiute Tribe Reservation. Work that has been performed entails preparation of fuels reduction by creating defensible space around houses and tribal structures. Fuel breaks have also been created and maintained.

Defensible Space assessments have been performed by the Tribe's four man Hazardous Fuels Reduction Crew. Assessments are broken down into 3 components; Structure hazards, hazards within 50 feet and access (driveway) hazards. Hand thinning of shrubs and trees has been performed and mechanical treatment has been put into action by chipping branches and trimming tall grasses with weed eaters.
