Rapid City Survivable Space Initiative

Posted: Updated:

In an effort to make the community more "firewise," emergency personnel are pushing a new initiative for wildfire mitigation, called the Rapid City Survivable Space Initiative

Rapid City residents who have improved the safety of their home and property from wildland fire can apply to receive recognition from the City of Rapid City. 

Below is a map of the Rapid City area, showing an urban zone (red) and an ember zone (yellow). If you live in an urban zone, you are eligible to apply. Contact Lt. Tim Weaver with the Rapid City Fire Department via email or by phone at (605) 394-5233 to schedule a no cost, no obligation review of their property.
