FIRESafe MARIN is pleased to announce the publication of the 2016 Marin County Community Wildfire Protection Plan. This document represents more than a year of work by a diverse group of community stakeholders, fire officials, and wildfire science experts to produce an updated CWPP which broadly addresses wildfire risk and hazard in Marin County and provides a framework for future mitigation efforts.
Fire and land management agencies, landowners, residents
FIRESafe MARIN funded the develpment of state-of-the-art GIS, and computer fuel (vegetation) and fire modeling techniques provide unique insight and planning tools to better allocate mitigation funding and prepare communities for the inevitable wildfire.
Spatial Distribution of Vegetation, Development, Infrastructure
Identification of vegetation types, height, and spacing
Flame length and rate of spread under differing weather conditions
Your home's first line of defense against an approaching wildfire. 100' of Defensible Space is required by law to help slow or stop the spread of wildfire, protecting your home from direct flame contact and radiant heat while catching or redirecting wind blown embers.
Wildfires burn vegetation. The wild plants growing in open spaces and the landscaping around homes can be fuel for disaster. Your home may be both beautiful AND fire resistant with careful selection of plants and landscape features.
