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.


Lake Cushman Wildfire Risk Assessment
DNR completed our latest Risk Assessment in Oct of 2019.  The Risk Assessment details the entire area and the potential risk posed by wildfire due to the amount of fuel in an area.  Mitigation recomendations are included in the document.

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.

There are two versions of our Timesheet for you to choose from: 


Online Timesheet (preferred method)
Online Volunteer Timesheet
(submit here)

Or a PDF to print and turn in:
