FEMA Project

In 2012 the State of Arizona received a FEMA pre-disaster mitigation grant that was a collaborative effort between SABCC, the Pima County Office of Emergency Management, Pima County Natural Parks and Recreation and the Tucson International Airport.

This is a 3 year project involving two sites and the surrounding neighborhoods.  During the next 3 years, we will keep the community updated on our progress on this project.

November 30th, 2012 - Buffelgrass Mitigation Bus Tour

On November 30, 2012, the Southern Arizona Buffelgrass Coordination Center will hold a bus tour of the urban fire risk to promote dialog, identify a framework for prioritized risk mitigation, and initiate concerted and integrated action across the larger Tucson area, including bordering municipalities.

Representatives from the SABCC, Pima County government, and Tucson Airport Authority will facilitate to solicit expert opinion from participants. The over-arching goal is to lay the groundwork for a community-wide plan that reduces the urban fire risk in a timely and sustainable manner. Read more HERE
