King CD has expanded its rural forest health management services to provide a range of wildfire resiliency services to help homeowners and communities prepare for wildfire. This work is being done with funding through the King CD Working Lands Initiative (WLI) and in partnership with the King County Forestry Program.

The wildfire resiliency services offered by King CD include site visits to conduct wildfire risk assessments of individual homes or communities, Firewise Community Action Plans for communities interested in implementing forest fuels reduction projects, and Wildfire Resiliency planning for forest landowners.
