FIRESafe MARIN and Marin County Fire Department are pleased to announce the publication of the first public draft 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.  A final draft will be adopted August 2016.

What is a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)?

In 2015, CAL FIRE awarded FIRESafe MARIN a $123,200 grant from the SRA Fire Prevention Fee Fund to update the 2005 Marin County Community Wildfire Protection Plan, and integrate it with the Marin County Fire Department Unit Strategic Fire Plan.

A 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.
