Bastrop County secures a $4M FEMA grant

Posted on June 10th, 2014 No Comments

A FEMA grant worth $4 million was recently given to Bastrop County to further assist with efforts in protecting its forests from future wildfires, KXAN reported on May 29.

The funds granted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be used to clear dead trees from 400 acres of forest.

According to FEMA coordinator Mike Fisher, forest clearing operations will be conducted by Texas A&M and environmental experts from Texas State University will oversee the environmental impact of the project.

In September 2011,  Bastrop County was hit hard by a devastating wildfire, killing two and burning thousands of acres of land. Apparently, it is suspected to have been caused by electrical sparks where two persons also died.
