Environmental Assessment for Rough and Ready Volunteer Fire Department, Nevada County, CA (July 2010)

Rough and Ready Volunteer Fire Department has applied for grant funding and other financial assistance to support the construction of a new fire station to replace the existing one which is poorly situation for fire protection purposes, inadequate in size and facilities, and suffers from numerous safety and code non-compliance issues. FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). FEMA prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the proposed project pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and FEMA’s implementing regulations found in 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 10.
