DEADWOOD — The city of Deadwood is one of only eight new communities across the country selected to receive technical assistance in 2018 under a national program that helps reduce the impacts from wildfires, including risks and costs. The Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) program offers support at the local level, as more cities and counties across the country experience the effects of devastating wildfires. Through CPAW, Deadwood will collaborate with a team of consultants, including land use planners, foresters, and risk mapping experts, to help communities identify and implement local planning measures, such as improved policies to reduce wildfire risk to future development.
