Grimes County fire and emergency services personnel and officials of the A&M Forest Service packed this week’s session of commissioners court to recognize the county for being only the 19th of Texas’ 254 counties to develop what’s called a CWPP.
Texas A&M Forest Service Director Tom Boggess said Grimes has done it right. With CWPP usually standing for Community Wildfire Prevention Plan, here in Grimes it stands for County. He then outlined the program’s wildfire mitigation and prevention potential for the court, especially where developed and undeveloped areas intermingle.
And although he didn’t being along enough for everyone, Boggess left as many specially-minted coins about the new program with Emergency Management Coordinator David Lilly and other county officials as he had, promising others would be forthcoming for the rest.
