COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLAN UPDATE: PUBLIC MEETINGS

You are invited!  Marin County Fire Department & FIRESafe MARIN are actively working to complete an update to the 2005 Marin County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).

We invite all interested parties to attend one of four CWPP public meetings:

What is a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)?
The Marin County CWPP serves as a framework to prioritize future wildfire hazard protection, develop actions to reduce structural ignitability, and identify and prioritize potential fuel treatment, hazard mitigation, and restoration projects.  The Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA) provided communities with the opportunity to influence where and how federal agencies implement fuel reduction projects on federal lands. A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is the most effective way to take advantage of this opportunity.  Additionally, communities with Community Wildfire Protection Plans in place are given priority for funding of hazardous fuels reduction projects carried out using federal funds, including millions of dollars in state and federal grants potentially available to Marin.

What can I expect at the public meeting?
Our team of wildfire scientists, fire officials, public land managers, and community volunteers will present the current state of wildfire science in Marin, and facilitate discussion and input to identify and prioritize potential projects.

Marin County Fire Department and FIRESafe MARIN seek to work with the public and stakeholders to identify areas of hazard and concern, and to work collaboratively to develop wildfire hazard mitigation solutions and guidelines that will be documented in an updated CWPP.
