South Dakota Wildland Fire works with numerous communities throughout the Black Hills to reduce the risk of wildfire. We do this by reducing fuel loading on 1000 acres annually in and around communities at risk, offering free home assessments, and working with communities to help them become Firewise USA recognized sites.

Boulder Canyon

Performed an assessment on every structure on Boulder Canyon. We have treated 300 acres over the last 4 years and are planning on treating an additional 200 acres to extended the continuity of the fuel break.

Elk Ridge

Treated 250 acres in and around the Elk Ridge Subdivision.

The Woodlands of Spearfish

Hosted an educational workshop for the Woodlands Subdivision then helped the subdivision become Firewise USA recognized.
