Russ Steele on future local fallout from Google Earth

Russ has an interesting post today, pointing out that the (CNN-reported) use of Google Earth by insurance companies to view homeowners' brush clearance efforts (to detect noncompliers and cancel their policies) will be coming to Nevada County sometime soon*.

So expect a chainsaw serenade in Nevada County this spring, should it ever arrive.

This page (Sept 2004 archive) contains links to Nevada County Fire Plan news articles, rough summary of the recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, and the gist of an LA Times article on our fire plan.
