Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)

We encourage the development of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP), as defined by the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA). The CWPP enables a community to plan how it will reduce the risk of wildfire. The plan identifies strategic sites and methods for fuel reduction projects across the landscape and jurisdictional boundaries. Benefits of having a CWPP include National Fire Plan funding priority for projects identified in a CWPP. The United States Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management can expedite the implementation of fuel treatments, identified in a CWPP, through alternative environmental compliance options offered under the HFRA. (Refer, California Fire Alliance). In order to meet the requirements of a CWPP, DES can prepare Fire Risk Assessments, Fuel Treatment Management Plans, Defensible Space from Hazardous Fuels for Homes and Communities, and Shaded Breaks and Fire Guards for Roads and Communities.
