Wildfire Mitigation

Living in the Northwest has countless benefits, from tranquil surroundings and unmatched scenery, to the plentiful wildlife and recreational activities. Calling the mountains home is truly a fulfilling experience, however it does not come without risk.

As an electric utility, FEC is focused on developing and maintaining a Wildfire Mitigation Plan to protect our equipment, our members, and our communities. We encourage homeowners to develop a wildfire plan as well. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of helpful links which are a great starting point in developing your own strategy, should a wildfire impact our community.
