Lake Cushman CommunityWildfire Protection Plan
This document was filed in 2006 to create our Lake Cushman Firewise Community.  Very important information for the community to read regarding what Firewise at Lake Cushman is all about.








In order to maintain our Firewise Community status we are required to submit annual reports that document the hours worked by the Lake Cushman Community.  We do this by using our Timesheets.
