FIRE SAFETY INTRODUCTION
The Jeremy Ranch Owners Association is a community consisting of approximately 610 homes spread over an estimated 1.4 square mile parcel located just north of Interstate 80 in Park City, UT. In 2018 the Board of Trustees of the Jeremy Ranch Owners Association (the “Board”) recognized the need for action on wildfire preparedness and reached out to neighboring HOAs and PC Fire District to understand steps needed to better prepare our community. Over the course of 2019 and early 2020, members of the Board met with members of the Park City Fire District, the Department of Natural Resources, and certain consultants in order to understand the parameters of a Community Wildfire Preparedness Plan (“CWPP”) and to take necessary steps to implement the Plan. In June 2020, the Board submitted its completed CWPP to the State of Utah and is currently researching the Firewise USA program of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to gain knowledge on becoming a Firewise Community.
Concurrently in 2018 the Board began work to help educate the members of the HOA on wildfire preparedness. The Board invited members of the Park City Fire District to come to the Community’s Annual Meetings to help educate homeowners in ways to mitigate the risk of damage from wildfires around their homes. The Board has also promoted the Park City Fire District’s free wood chipping program to minimize fuel sources around homes.
Homeowners are encouraged to clear all dead undergrowth and trees (as well as overgrowth) from their lots, and to create 30 – 100 foot safety zones around their homes. Homeowners can learn more about creating safety zones around their houses at the following websites:
