Douglas County Commissioner Tim Freeman has been reappointed an ex officio member of the Douglas Forest Protective Association Board.
DFPA is a private nonprofit corporation that protects 1.6 million acres from wildland fires. The association is one of just three of its kind remaining in the state. It was founded in 1912.
Its board is made up of 11 members and four ex officio members chosen from government agencies.
Freeman said in a written statement he's honored to be reappointed to DFPA.
"Together with the board and local agencies, we are working to educate and prepare residents, and find solutions to manage our lands from the threat of wildfires," Freeman said.
