COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLANS

The Community Wildfire Protection Plan Program (CWPP) assists local governments in identifying the risks of wildfire to their community as well as opportunities to reduce those risks. The purpose of a CWPP is to identify the wildfire risks within and surrounding a community, to describe the potential consequences if a wildfire was to impact the community, and to examine possible ways to reduce the wildfire risk.
