Community Wildfire Protection Plan

Tools for Firefighters

We have taken several steps to make the assessment process as simple as possible. Local fire departments have received training on how to conduct the assessments, Denton County Geographical Information Services (GIS) has developed a free phone application (app) to aid in rapidly completing the assessments in the field, and a “form field” narrative template has been developed. Instructions on how to load and use the phone app, and copies of the forms used, are available by clicking on the navigation buttons on the left side of this page.

The Word document forms have been left unlocked so that each department may customize the forms, if they so desire. For the sake of consistent and coherent reporting, we only ask that departments do not edit the content of the score sheet. The narrative example and form field template are tools meant to simplify the reporting. The assessor should feel free to delete and add information in order to create the most meaningful report.

Before conducting assessments, please review the risk assessment process.
