Village of Ruby Fuels Reduction Project: The intent of this fuels reduction project is to provide defensible space from wildland fires in and around in the village of Ruby, Alaska. This grant opportunity and its activities will assist in the mitigation of potential impacts of wildland fire spread from public lands (Nowitna NWR) onto private properties. The treatment area includes approximately 100 acres in the immediate vicinity of private homes and local businesses. The village of Ruby has been identified by the State of Alaska and by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as a community at risk from wildland fires originating on private and public lands. Goals 1. Create shaded fuel breaks and fire breaks in and around the village to mitigate potential fire spread into the village from unwanted wildland fires from federal and private lands. 2. Promote a collaborative approach to community fire hazard reduction by educating local communities and homeowners in Firewise concepts and engaging them in the process of planning, and implementing fuels mitigation. 3. Enhance employment opportunities and encourage small business development through the use of local labor resources. This project will employ from 10 to 20 local personnel. 4. Conduct treatment activities in a way that promotes the safety of fireline personnel and the public.
